Super Mia And The Good Luck Duo
By Marie-Yolaine Williams
Once again, before I start in on this review, I must let you know that normally, I don’t accept children’s books. Just as I don’t accept YA or fantasy and most sci-fi…unless the book catches my interest. This one did. This one and another one by the same author. Please don’t send me requests for reviews for these genres because 99% of the time I will take a pass.
A dumped greyhound is befriended by a stray cat. They both are rescued and taken to a shelter where they meet the manager, Mia. Mia discovers that, after the two animals have been at the shelter for awhile, some amazing things happen.
I liked simplistic plot where characters are introduced and there are animals involved at a shelter and a happy ending for all.
Baggins: black greyhound
Evader: nicknamed ‘Vader’, black cat
Mia: animal shelter managers, suffers from M.S., blue eyes, blonde, Greek
Anouk: French, shelter assistant.
Interesting duo of humans and they share a bit of each culture. There are ‘interviews’ with two dogs at the end of the book, shelter adoptees that are pretty good.
Okay. A bit of a distinctive voice from Vader and the two dogs at the end.
A somewhat longer children’s book but not too long for boredom to set in. Could have used more pictures as there were pages without any pictures. A good message given for people to adopt animals from a shelter.
