Book Review: No, You Sit!

Happy Monday! We've got like 13 days until Christmas or something like that, are you ready? I feel ready. I've been sick and just generally not feeling great so that's kind of been a bummer. I'm getting through some books though, so there's that. 

No, You Sit! - PD the Pug

From the acclaimed author of Get Me Out Of Here! Reflections Of PD The Put-Upon Pug, comes every dog’s fantasy, brought to life in this hilarious rumination that uncovers exactly how to turn the master into the servant.
I haven't read the first one, this is my first experience with PD the Pug, so I went into this not knowing what to expect. It was a short book, you can read through this easily within an hour, so I can always appreciate a fast read. It was humorous and clever, I definitely chuckled because I can absolutely imagining some of these things going through my own Twinky's head. 
The book isn't just about pugs, other dogs are mentioned so your dog will feel included, so no worries. My Twinky has me fully trained, my entire day circles around him, his nap schedule, and his potty breaks. Perhaps Twinky has somehow communicated with PD because a lot of the tips mentioned in the book are things I've experienced with my little dog. 

Overall, this was a cute book, full of humor, and definitely something any dog lover/owner would really enjoy. Outside of that, I'm not sure who the targeted audience would really be. My seven year old even read it and she absolutely loved it, so I don't think I'm the demographic they are aiming for. It isn't a book I'd see on a table and think, "Oh, I'm going to buy this", it's more of something I'd see on a waiting room table and read through because its there and I've got time. The book comes in at 170 pages, but with the larger type chapter titles, illustrations, and generous breaks betweek sections, it reads quick and you'll get a smile (maybe even a laugh) or two. I thought the writing was good for the kind of book it was (I mean, its written by a dog, this isn't literary fiction). 

Thank you to Red Clover Digital for having me on this tour and providing a copy for review!
