Seeing this post-apocalyptic tale compared to Station Eleven (which I really didn’t like!), I had some trepidation going in. I shouldn’t have worried, though, as A Boy and his Dog at the End of the World is a wholly different beast, and I loved it!
A dog book that even this dyed-in-the-wool cat person loved? I know, it’s amazing!
A middle grade retelling of Cinderella with a sassy magical heroine, a ridiculous talking dog, and a fairy godmother named Brian? It’s a recipe for a rather madcap adventure!
From the moment the email about this book dropped into my inbox, I could see it was going to be exactly the kind of fun, energetic kids book I love, with the kind of heroine I can’t resist!
How could I resist a middle grade tale about dragons and libraries? Well, I couldn’t. This book is just perfect, as if it was written for me, and a whole dragon’s hoard of young bookworms are going to adore it!
A story about a fancy cat who wears bowties and has a beautiful library? I had to read this book!
