The Puppy who wanted a boy is an entertaining and fun loving story for kids. Instead of being the boy who's looking for a puppy for christmas, it's the puppy who wants to find a boy. I would recommend this to lower elementary students. ( )

This adorable book was a lot of fun to read to my son when he was younger. Cute, quirky, humorous, and heartwarming, highly recommended for children. ( )
