I was delighted to have the opportunity to review Bash and Lucy Fetch Jealousy. The idea of a mother-son team had me even more interested. I love seeing kids being creative.
This story was quite unique. The boy named Bash thinks and behaves like a dog and the dog named Lucy thinks and behaves like a person. They are so in sync with each other, and I think that is how children relate to their pets.
Amanda loved how Lucy was so friendly and licked everyone. Her favorite funny part was when Bash and the children went looking for her on all fours, as if they were dogs themselves.
I loved how the authors introduced us to kids with disabilities and service dogs. They also dealt sensitively with the emotion of jealousy and how that can get in the way of making friends and learning to share.
I highly recommend this meaningful and entertaining book to children ages 5 to 8.
