Reviewed by Mamta Madhavan for Readers' Favorite Mister Spunky And His Friends by Kelly Preston is the story of Mister Spunky, a happy dog who loved driving around in his convertible with the top down and his sunglasses on. Mister Spunky loved the beach and enjoyed playing in the waves. As he is driving along the freeway to the beach, he sees a frightened dog. He takes the frightened dog, Buffy, with him to the beach. As they drive along, they pick up two more dogs and they all go to the beach together and have loads of fun. The story is adorable and kids will fall in love with Mister Spunky, Buffy, Carla, and Miss Sunshine. The illustrations are bright and lively and give good pace and movement to the story. They also breathe life into the characters and scenes. It's an excellent bedtime storybook that conveys good messages to young readers and can also be used for interactive sessions in classrooms and school libraries. Each dog in the story has a personality of its own, and all dog lovers will be able to connect well with the story. Children understand concepts and themes more easily when narrated with the help of a story and illustrations. Mister Spunky and his friends will remain in the minds of young readers for a long time and so will the book as it speaks about the power of friendship. An adorable story that highlights the importance of friendship, love, and how to be kind and helpful to those with special needs.

Very rarely do I pick up a simple children's book and find myself getting emotional. I know that sounds potentially silly, but it's true. I have loved the work of this author for quite some time, and she has now released a children's book with a sweet tale, wonderful illustrations, and a heartfelt message for people everywhere. Bullying is something I believe everyone understands. Who hasn't experienced it, and who enjoys discussing it with your children? I know I don't--especially young children. What a great way to open the door to a necessary discussion. Children can identify with the dogs, and Kelly's heart rings true. I highly recommend this to dog lovers of all ages (hard to say who will enjoy it the most). I was sent a copy of this book in exchange for my honest review. I was not financially compensated, and all opinions are 100 percent mine.

Delightful, and wonderful illustrations. The boys and I read this together, and they both thought it was a great story. They loved that Mister Spunky was so kind and showed so much compassion. They agreed that it would be fun to go to the beach with these dogs, and maybe try the ice cream...I don't think so. The story highlights bullying, disabilities, feeling of being unloved. Unfortunately, these apply to people as well as animals. What great examples for them to learn from. They love dogs, and this really touched them. A really sweet story and good lessons to be learned. I received this book through Rebecca's Writing Services, and the author Kelly Preston, and was not required to give a positive review.
