” Readers will frantically read on to see what happens to the adorable pups. I had a feeling I knew what the outcome would be, but the tale that Salamon wove to get to the ending was one I never saw coming! Black and white pencil drawings throughout the book make the story all the more interesting. Jill Weber, illustrator, and Julie Salamon make a good pair for children’s literature.
When I read the book Mutt’s promise, it just took me away in a world of emotion and adventure. I felt as if the whole thing was happening in front of my eyes. When I was reading I wished I could help the puppies. Personally I used to not adore puppies and after reading this book I learned there is a good side of a dog. I also wish I could adopt Luna or Chief to cuddle with my cat even though I doubt they would like each other.
