The Adventures of Shola

About the Book
Small dog. Big dreams.

From her rustic, mouse-mad cousin Angeliño to Señor Grogó's rodeo-chasing, wild Aunt Clementine from Wyoming, nobody in these four surprising stories can help agreeing with Shola in the end: leads are for losers and it's far better to be free. Shola is a dog who knows what's what and how best to say it, and she'll even say it live on tv. As long as nobody gets too discombobulated about it.Shola may look like an ordinary white pet dog but, as her long-suffering owner Señor Grogó knows only too well, she is in fact a highly cultivated creature and the world is her playground - or rather, her jungle. For little Shola is ever ready to discover her inner lioness or to lead the pack on a wild-boar hunt. If only home-made cheese and finely cooked, delicious, marvelous, near-miraculous chips were not quite so tempting, the world would recognize her for the heroic dog she truly is. Luckily Shola finds soul-mates in unexpected quarters.

My Take on the Book
This was a fun book that was funny and charming. I loved the character of Shola and while the book was not what I first expected, it ended up being a book that I thoroughly enjoyed and one that I entranced and encouraged me to continue reading page after page. The author did a great job with the story and character development and in the end you truly want Shola to find the love and friendship that is being searched for. This was a heartwarming book that was a fun read, and it is one that I would encourage all to read!
