Trusted Reviews & Ratings

B is for Bookworm
Book-loving mommy-to-be! Recently enjoyed The Hobbit, Becoming, and The Marvelous Magic of Miss Mabel.
3.0 / 7.0

This book of a girl and her dog includes five different mini stories about different adventures and happenings in their lives. The stories weren’t that exciting or captivating…I personally found them to be dull. Maybe dog-lovers would have a different opinion.
