This girl loved her dog, but she also loved her special book. And Book loved her. But how about Book and Egg Cream? Could they coexist as the girl's two favorite things in the whole wide world?

oor book, no one picks him up because he doesn’t look interesting. He was smart, he was strong and he wanted children to laugh at his stories but he just didn’t feel special. Then it happened, a girl finally picked him up and he thought yes, he “must be the girl’s favorite thing in the whole wide world.” But no, he realizes the girl has a dog which does all kinds of fun things and poor book just sits and watches. The book also had another concern with dog. Dog’s wet and drooling tongue could be problematic should it get close. It’s a warm afternoon and book and girl are enjoying each other’s company by the water, when suddenly they can longer see each other. Mud has covered everything! Girl is upset, book is damaged and dog, he was just being dog. It will be okay eventually but now, they need to work through a few things. The text wasn’t hard to follow and it’s pretty straightforward. The illustrations were very simple and were a mixed media, paints and either pencils or crayons. Dog was either colored pencil or crayons and I wasn’t too keen on that but it will appeal to younger readers. I loved the book cover, it really enforced the message this book portrayed.
