Bobo and the New Neighbor
Page, Gail. 2008. Bobo and the New Neighbor.
For anyone who loves dogs or muffins...have I got a book for you! I loved Bobo and the New Neighbor by Gail Page. I believe that this is a follow up to the book How To Be A Good Dog. (But as my luck would have it, I haven't read the original. If it is anything like this one, I'm sure it's a great book. Note to self: find a copy and enjoy!!) Bobo loves many things, we're told, and one of the things he loves is meeting new people. So it's to his great delight when a new neighbor moves in. His owner, Mrs. Birdhead, doesn't lose much time in inviting that neighbor, a Mrs. Wrinklerump, over for tea. I won't go into all the details, but this one is funny and enjoyable and just satisfying in a grinning ear-to-ear kind of way.
