Two stories in one - double the reading fun! Meet Nico and Tugger, two dogs that became brothers. Their story is an endearing and fun look at sibling rivalry. - from two points of view.

My Thoughts:

This book has two stories. First you get Nico's side of the story and then you get Tugger's. Nico was an only dog and he liked it that way. He got all of the attention and didn't have to share anything. But everything changes when his little brother Tugger is brought to live with them. Now people pay attention to Tugger when they come over and he's always stealing Nico's toys and annoying him. Tugger was really excited to have a big brother but Nico would never play with him. To try and get Nico's attention he started stealing his toys.

Eventually the two of them grow to love each other and enjoy each other's company. Nico realized that Tugger's not trying to annoy him and steal his attention, he just wants to play. I Liked how this book told both sides of the story not just the big or little brother's side. Sometimes even dogs get a case of sibling rivalry. This would be a great book to read to a child who is about to become a big brother or sister. It will not only let them know that it's normal to feel that way but it also shows them the little brother or sister's side so they can understand better. I really, really, liked this story it was absolutely adorable.

*I was sent a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
