The Great Puppy Invasion by Alastair Heim Illustrated by Kim Smith
In Strictville, fun is forbidden, play is prohibited, and cuteness is downright criminal. So when hundreds of puppies show up, the town is in turmoil. How can they get rid of all these adorable animals? When their solutions fail, all the townspeople run and lock themselves safely in the houses except for little Teddy. Teddy wonders “How could these cute puppies be scary?” With one simple gesture, Teddy teaches the townspeople that fun, play, and cuteness make Strictville a happier place to live.
Being a proud dog mom, I loved turning each page to see piles and piles of puppies. I am amazed that each puppy is unique in its own way! Kim Smith has included so many details in every illustration; therefore, rereading is required! No doubt children will fall in love with this picture book and want it to be read aloud over and over. Adults need not worry for Alastair Heim has included plenty of humor to keep all ages entertained!
