Everyone loves Amos and his adventure. The best discussion this year on how this could be true! We talked about make-believe and true stories and the cues that the text and illustrations give the reader.

PB 20: This is a good adventure book. I like the pictures in the book, and my dogs like to sleep on the couch the same way Amos does. It shows that animals need stimulation everyday just like humans do.

OMG I totally loved Amos when I was a chidder! He's rad. This story is excellent because he rides around town on his couch-car.

A cute storybook with adorable illustrations about a dog who decides to follow his people who no longer seem to take him with them when they leave the house.
