I'm intrigued by the concept behind this book/series-to-be. Author Bruce Dierking's first book in the Power Paws series is a winner. The books in the series are designed to take the reader from puppyhood, er, childhood, through age 10, focusing on the growth and maturing thought and physical abilities of the reader by showcasing them in the books' characters. There should be much to discuss and think about here.
The illustrations by Penny Weber are imaginative and fun. We see Lil Paw in action, playing with her siblings, and her dreams are big. She comes from a water dog family, which to be simplistic, is a large pawed, strong breed used for water rescue. Lil Paw is still a pup, however, but aspires to grow up just like her mother, a champion water dog, and father, a champion Sheriff Dog.
I'm looking forward to following this story as it evolves. Thanks to #NetGalley and #CircleDPublishing LLC for introducing me to Lil Paw. My Daisy dog sends her some virtual licks.
