From the author of The Day the Crayons Quit comes a hilarious chapter-book adventure of a pug who gets a new family. Perfect Gotcha Day No, Sam belongs to Justin now, and there is so much to understand and learn. If he only knew his new owners, think of him: he is chaotic, and he even makes Justin's crush mad at him. But... this cute pug is just too funny. He sees the world in a different way (the names he gives people and objects are fun) and although he thinks he is fighting other villains he will save the day.

I laughed out loud reading this, also perfect for reading aloud. I look forward to seeing the final artwork and collecting a physical copy. I've read a digital advance.r.copy.

Love the writing style. It's the dairy of a pug and the language is fun. Lots of events to explore and also opinions. I love the pug's expressions in the artwork that I've already seen. Some pages have comics and the mix makes it a fast-paced enjoyable reading that can be reread when the world overwhelms us. It just improves any mood, even of older readers who love puppy (or specifically pug) stories. Also, it's very relatable.

The scene of the blow drier and his thoughts of the person using it was hilarious. It's tiny things about everyday life that make it even more fun to read.

Thank you Netgalley and publisher for the e-arc.
