In this autobiography with a twist, Lord Banjo (AKA the royal pooch), is a distinguished dog who finds out (through his human owners) that his heritage comes from a long line of royal dogs of the French monarchy. This book is a summary of highlights from a year through his eyes. His writings contain details about his daily life, friends, likes and dislikes, and summer trips. As he writes his memoirs, Banjo is joined by his critter friends, Puddin’ the cat, and Tinker the dog.

 

Opinion: 

Kathy Manos Penn writes this book with the main character styled after her own dog and gives him a very human-like personality. Lord Banjo has a very regal tone and is extremely entertaining to listen to! I would highly recommend this book for young children to young teenagers, as it is easy to follow. They may even learn some higher vocabulary and some French! I also recommend this book to animal lovers, as it is full of furry critters. Overall, I really enjoyed this book. It gave me a new perspective on dogs. The author achieved her purpose in crafting a fun, entertaining, and even informative book!
