LONDONDERRY, N.H. (PRWEB) February 14, 2012
Dogs have been part of human families since time immemorial. People and dogs have been living together for so long that these two species can generally empathize with the other’s moods and emotions. Author Sandi Hoffman writes about how a couple sensed the loneliness of their furry family member, and decided to add another set of paws to make things merrier.
Kenzie & The Pest is an illustrated story book that tells the story of Kenzie, a yellow dog who became lonely when his family moved into a new neighborhood. Kenzie stopped playing and ate less, so Dad and Mom decided to do something about it. When a new yellow puppy arrived, hilarity and shenanigans ensued.
Parents and young children will absolutely adore Kenzie & The Pest. The words are easy to follow, and the illustrations are cute and very expressive, courtesy of artist Heather Stanley. This book is made by pet lovers, for pet lovers.
This book will be featured at the 2012 Michigan Reading Association Book Exhibit in Grand Rapids, MI, on March 9-11, 2012.
