This is a great book. It reminds me so much of Dr. Seuss, with the rhyming and the journey this poor pup takes to happiness. Astro is a sad little puppy, but he has friends with great ideas to cheer him up.

This is something kids really need to read. Because depression and sadness is a real thing, and it's good to find answers to sadness early in life, so you can deal with it in a healthy way

In this book, Astro finds that sometimes food can cheer you up. Or exercise. Or music. Or dancing. Or just plain going outside and basking in the sun. There are so many ways to be happy. Just choose one, and don't just wallow in your sadness.

The artwork in this book was awesome. I can't draw at all. But in this story, not only can the illustrator draw better than me, but Astro can as well! A dog. A dog can draw and paint better than me.

A dog... Grrr. Okay, now I'm down in the dumps like Astro. So I'm just going to go outside and dance in the sun. Maybe I'll find a friend, and we can dance together.

Happiness is what you make it, and this book shows you many ways to kick the sadness out the door.
