Kirkus Review

A cuddly, squishy pug's puggy-wuggy diary. Equipped with both #pugunicorn and #pughotdog outfits, pug Baron von Bubbles (aka Bub) is the kind of dog that always dresses to impress. Bub also makes lots of memorable faces, such as the "Hey, you're not the boss of me!" expression aimed at Duchess, the snooty pink house cat. Some of Bub's favorite things include skateboarding, a favorite teddy, and eating peanut butter. Bub also loves Bella, who adopted Bub from a fairit was "love at first sniff." Together, Bub and Bella do a lot of arts and crafts. Their latest project: entering Bella's school's inventor challenge by making a super-duper awesome rocket. But, when the pesky neighborhood squirrel, Nutz, makes off with Bub's bear, Bub accidentally ruins their project. How will they win the contest? More importantly, how will Bella ever forgive him? May's cutesy, full-color cartoon art sets the tone for this pug-tastic romp for the new-to-chapter-books crowd. Emojilike faces accentuate Bub's already expressive character design. Bub's infectious first-person narration pushes the silly factor off the charts. In addition to creating the look and feel of a diary, the lined paper helps readers follow the eight-chapter story. Most pages have fewer than five sentences, often broken into smaller sections. Additional text appears in color-coded speech bubbles. Bella presents white.Totes adorbs.
