This book sure makes me want to have a little puppy of my own - a little golden retriever like Storm! I've always wanted my own pet, just like Lily. Anyone who likes dogs and ponies would love this book.

My daughter is reading level 1 and 2 books entirely on her own, so I read aloud chapter books with her. We started this Magic Puppy series last month, and she *loves* it. Cute story line but simple plot that my 5 year old can follow.

My 5 year old daughter and me read these books together and she loves them! These our her new favorite chapter books and she can't wait to read the next one! It's magical, funny, and sincere all at the same time! I also let my daughter say how many stars to put for these books!
