Pawcasso, by Remy Lai
Author: Remy Lai
Genre/ issues: Middle grade. Graphic novels. Pets. Family and relationships.
Oh what a fluffy warm hug of a book this is! Pawcasso by Remy Lai is a middle grade graphic novel that ticked all the boxes for me this afternoon. A super-sweet story about Pawcasso, a grocery-shopping pooch who picks up a follower on his Saturday trip to the markets when Jo spots him out the window and follows him, intrigued. She runs into some kids from school who mistakenly assume this adorable pooch is hers, and she doesn’t correct them. No harm, right? Well, we know how these things go – and Jo needs to decide if she’ll risk her new friendships by admitting the truth. Funny, sweet, and beautifully illustrated – a highly recommended addition to your collection!
