Holly Bea's beloved bullmastiff, Buddy, is having a bad day. Left alone to guard the house, he is taunted by the neighborhood cats, who know that he can't touch them. Buddy is worried—will Holly be back soon, or is she gone for the day, or even forever? Much to Buddy's relief, Holly returns. They go to the park, but Buddy's fun is cut short by a pack of hostile squirrels and a team of Dalmatian firedogs who challenge his self-esteem. Will this day ever end? Buddy's day is a metaphor for the doubts and anxieties children face, and a soothing reminder that God will always be there for them.

PreSchool-Grade 2–A bullmastiff stars in this nondenominational book about God's love and support. Throughout his day, the animal faces many troubling situations. His visit to the park is ruined when the squirrels tease and throw nuts at him. He misbehaves at obedience class, worries during a visit to the vet, and gets in trouble for snatching some hot dogs at a family cookout. Each of these scenarios is paired with a brightly colored illustration and a reassuring verse. For example, a picture of the pup disconsolately watching two smart Dalmatians assist in fighting a fire is accompanied by "If you think you failed the test,/And you can't keep up with the rest,/Someone knows that you're the best/'Cause God believes in you." The dog's day ends on a happy note when he watches fireworks with other canines. Children will empathize with this lovable character.–Linda L. Walkins, Mount Saint Joseph Academy, Brighton, MA
