This is such a cute book! My little monkey enjoyed it so much! The pictures are great and colorful. The story is very relate-able!

I am looking forward to the next installment of the Mike and Tyke Series.

The book was fantastic! It was a thrilling read. The story takes the reader through the emotions and psyche of a school aged boy and his friend and dog. Every page is a new adventure.
