Life Lessons from a Four-Legged Friend: Lola and Tattletale Zeke by Maria Goldman

Hi there!
Welcome back to Satisfaction for Insatiable Readers.

Today, I bid you to SIT and STAY because the title in the spotlight is going to make you want to BEG for more.  Don't worry, there IS more where this title came from as it's actually part of a growing series starring one ADORABLE fur-baby set on sharing little life lessons with her adoring fans.  Ladies and gents, feel free to turn a time or two to find your most comfortable position and prepare yourself for today's book of choice...

Marcia Goldman

 In this sequel to Lola Goes to Work (which I have not read but looks JUST as sweet!), Lola is a pup on a deal with her little brother Zeke.  Now, I know what your thinking, how does she have to "deal" with him?  Well you see, he has this incredibly bad habit of being a tattletale (hence the book's title) and it's not until the tables are turned on him by one tricky black kitty that he truly understands how his actions have affected his kid sister.  The next opportunity to tattle presents itself and there with a kind lick and a comforting paw.  Lesson learned!

Dog lover or not, I can't imagine how anyone could read this little gem and not fall in love with this pair.  Beyond the cuteness factor (because let's face it, these little Yorkies are ADORBS!), the humorous situations they get into will bring a smile to your face and the lessons imparted will carry it straight to your heart.  Though the words are limited, they marry well with the pictures so that even the youngest readers have something to cling to while the oldest among us revel in the same enjoyment.  If you have any doubts about how endearing this little pup is, check out the video starring the author and this wonderful little therapy dog below...

...need I say more?

The dog on the left puts me in mind of Candy, the Yorkshire Terrier we had when I was a girl.

I've already fallen in love with Lola and Tattletale Zeke and am sure I'd enjoy the humour.
