Dog Days in the City- Book Review

My thanks to the #KidLitExchange for this review copy. Getting books in the mail is always so fun!

This book is the sequel to An Unlikely Story of a Pig in the City which I read in 2017, not sure if that review made it over here, but I remember liking it. You can jump right into this story without reading the first book if you want to.

Animal loving kids will adore this one! Our main character Josie (and her lovely large family) are back and she has given up ballet lessons to help out at the animal shelter. Someone drops off a litter of puppies and chaos ensues. In the midst of all that her own dog is quite ill, her neighbor is moving and she has some typical middle school drama.

I’d say that kids on the younger side of middle grade will enjoy this the most, it does involve some tear inducing pet moments so be aware of that before starting it.

All in all a solid sequel. Dog Days in the City by Jodi Kendall
