(synopsis from Goodreads)

This is another cute book about Pugtato and his... um... edible friends.

I read Pugtato Finds a Thing back in September and thought it was adorable. This book is just as cute. However, it's not really a story like the first one. In fact, except for the fact that this book is a bit of a spoiler for the first one, it actually works better as the first book in the series because it's basically just an introduction to all the characters. In this book, we see Pugtato's friends being friendly... but that's really all there is to it. It's sweet, but there's no real plot.

If you liked Pugtato Finds a Thing, be sure to check out Pugtato, Let's Be Best Spuddies.

Thank you to NetGalley and Zonderkidz for providing a digital ARC.
