4.41  ·  Rating details ·  58 ratings  ·  20 reviews

Berkley has a huge nose.

He is always sticking it where it doesn’t belong, always getting into trouble. Can Berkley ever find a way to put his super sniffer to good use?

This is a fun and funny story of how being a little bit different can be an asset, not a disadvantage.

Terrific story!

Berkley, A Nose Tale by David Hillman is a book I won from LibraryThing but never received from the author so I used my Kindle Unlimited and got the book that way.
It is a charming book with the cutest illustrations! I had a dog like that and she was a hoot! Love the story and the pictures! Kids will love the delightful ending!

Berkley is a Basset Hound who has an unusually big nose. His oversized honker often gets him in trouble wherever he goes. He’s fond of garbage cans, skunks and honey – the last causing him a great deal of pain when a hoard of angry bees chases him off. But his favorite of all is sniffing Jeremy’s stinky socks. Berkley’s sniffer finally comes in handy one day when Jeremy’s friend Becky needs an important favor. Berkley saves the day!

This is an adorable story. Somehow, it reminded me s

This book was odd. The story and illustrations would have been better expanded into a beginning reader chapter book. The biggest thing that bothered me were the people's facial expressions; when they were excited they looked scared, and when happy they looked startled. The illustrator certainly didn't have human expression down and for a children's picture book I think it would be disturbing to the kids. There was also one really gross illustration.

Berkley is a friendly Beagle and Basset mix with a huge, talented nose. His "Huge Honker" compels him to seek out yummy smells which is sometimes stinky and painful. Where his nose "goes" trouble soon follows. That all changes one day when his nose is called to help find a lost pet. He succeeds and is the hero of the day. His reward? Get the book and be surprised!
Written and Illustrated by the creative David Hillman.
Highly recommended by Chloe and James Smoot

Such a cute story of a Beagle mix dog with a big nose. As a Beagle Mom I can relate, we have to keep the kitchen trash can in the bathroom, hide anything of value, no eating on the couch and a 1 mile walk can take forever. Love the illustrations!

Beautiful Illustrations

A cute story with a happy ending. Nice to see that a dog, who gets into trouble is not punished and a use for his sniffing is found.

Berkley is so animated I could see him sniff make noises and jump. The play on words about nose was funny and endearing. Well done

Very Cute

Very cute. Good moral to the story: If you stick your nose in the wrong places it can get you in trouble, but if you use it for good it can be rewarding.
