This is a fun book, really! Oprah, move over!

While on the surface “Lord Banjo the Royal Pooch” seems to be a book about a dog... pardon me... a book about His Highness, Lord Banjo, the book presents wisdom; it’s a kind of “self-help book in disguise.”

Ever heard people (including Oprah) declare, “You must love yourself before you can achieve ...(whatever)... ”?
Well, “Lord Banjo the Royal Pooch” gives you the dog version of the concept. Even better, while Oprah is still teaching and her fans are

Lord Banjo is a dog. He’s actually a royal dog. At least, that’s what he claims based on his lineage to the Great Pyrenees, the breed declared by King Louis XIV to be the Royal Dogs of France. It doesn’t matter that Lord Banjo is also part Golden Retriever, and has been identified as a flat-coated retriever mix. It’s all in the DNA. So this royal pooch is no Banjo Boy. He’s royalty and should be treated as such. At least, that’s what he claims. And he insists there be certain royal decrees, like ...more

Lord Banjo has always looked, felt, and acted like royalty, but now he has proof. For his human father’s birthday he gets a DNA test and finds that he is a descendant of France’s royal dogs. But he is not getting the treatment he deserves! Miss Beverly, his favorite dog-sitter, has declared that he is too fat. What she misses (according to Lord Banjo) is that Great Pyrenees are supposed to be “big boned.” Sadly, his parents agree, and before you can say “Great Pyrenee,” he is on a diet. What wil ...more

Lord Banjo the Royal Pooch is a fictionalized autobiography told by Banjo Penn – a golden retriever, Great Pyrenees, Australian shepherd mix – through his human mother, Kathy Manos Penn. When Banjo gets a DNA test back and learns about his Great Pyrenees ancestry, and learns that the Great Pyrenees were declared to be the Royal Dogs of France by King Louis XIV, Banjo decides to self-style himself as Lord Banjo, the royal ruler of the Penn household. Lord Banjo recounts how he interacts with the ...more

This was a lighthearted and heartwarming read!

The book isn’t long at all, but it’s full of humour. I loved reading about the world from a dogs perspective, and the constant moments that caused chuckles from myself made the a lovely change of pace.

Banjo is comical, and I can picture the body language of dogs, and picture how we see them behave and assume their attitudes. This book put the attitude into context in a hilarious way.

This is a particularly good idea for Children to read, the language

This book made me laugh. Laugh. Out. Loud.
And who doesn’t need a little laughter? My favorite pages of this book were the exchange of letters between Lord Banjo and his Royal Mum while he was at camp.
I would wholeheartedly recommend this book for any dog loving reader.

Lord Banjo discovers his royal ancestry as a result of a DNA test. He only wants what a dog of his status deserves and does his best to ensure those around him comply with his wishes. But he doesn’t always get his own way.
An enjoyable, light-hearted and fun read about the daily life of Lord Banjo and, his regal (by association) friends and family.
Made me smile and I look forward to reading the next instalment.
Highly recommended.
