Review:

For a little pug named Duffy, life is a series of simple pleasures: a morning nap, an after-breakfast nap, naps in the early afternoon, and time for snacks and play in between. Popular children's book duo Audrey and Don Wood paint a humorous and affectionate portrait of life with their pug, Duffy. Little dog-lovers will enjoy watching Duffy go about his day, and will get a kick out of seeing him coordinate outfits with his person. Don Wood's colorful illustrations bring the silly pup to life. This is a fun choice for young children.
