Review by Janet Ann Collins
This book has an interesting plot that isn't obvious and will keep young readers guessing. It will be welcomed by kids who have met Jeremiah Lucky in an earlier chapter book where the boy encountered his guardian angel. And Angus, that unusual angel, does make some brief appearances in this book.
But Jeremiah Lucky Finds Puppy Love can stand alone and will be enjoyed by kids who haven't read the first book in the series. And they'll probably be eagerly awaiting the next book about Jeremiah Lucky. They'll be lucky to have read this one.
Review by Sharon Stanley
Jeremiah Lucky is ready for summer and all that stands between him and a good time is the third grade play and his desire for a puppy. With his best friend headed for camp, his dad no longer living and his mom at work, a puppy could be just the right companion, but he may not be the only one in love with the shelter dog Polly.
Ms. Freeman has taken a simple story and combined just the right amount of intrigue, fantasy and possibility to make it a real page turner for elementary age kids. And to be honest, me too! Jeremiah Lucky Finds Puppy Love shared several great tips, was perfect for both girls and boys and managed to be sweet without being sappy. A tall order for just 70 pages. Highly recommend this one.
