Review
  • Gr 1–3—Sunny the pug loves her human, routine, and orange bunny toy, Mr. Bunny. But one morning everything seems a little out of balance. No amount of yoga or neighborhood surveillance calms her nerves, so she pulls out Mr. Bunny for a good chewing to relax. Soon, keys are heard at the door and in bursts a furry ball of energy. Sunny knows she must protect her home. Just as she is about to make her stand against this intruder, her human introduces the ball of energy as Rosy—Sunny's new sister. Sunny is stunned. How can this be? Sunny's routine disappears overnight, her ears get chewed by Rosy, her legs get chewed by Rosy, and she is really not happy when the newcomer finds Mr. Bunny and begins to chew. A tussle follows, Mr. Bunny falls from the window, and then Rosy sets off to look for Mr. Bunny. Sunny must find and bring her new sister back home. Ahn has taken her love of all things pug and has created a delightful duo. This is a charming beginning chapter book with many illustrations that will appeal to pug-loving young readers. VERDICT A worthy contribution to any collection that needs more beginning chapter books.—Lisa Nabel, Tacoma Public Library --Lisa Nabel (Reviewed 12/01/2017) (School Library Journal, vol 63, issue 12, p95)
  • A pug named Sunny has to get used to an exuberant new sister, a pug named Rosy, in debut author-illustrator Ahn’s first book in the Pug Pals series. Well-meaning Rosy is full of questions and energy, plays havoc with Sunny’s steady routine (which includes morning yoga), chews on her favorite “stuffies,” and generally pesters Sunny at every opportunity. Ahn’s clean, bold b&w cartoons (not all seen by PW) revel in Sunny’s growing anger—until an incident involving Sunny’s beloved “Mr. Bunny” brings the two pugs together. The second half of the book dives into action-adventure territory as the pugs don ninja costumes and try to track down Mr. Bunny in the outside world. It’s a breezy and entertaining story of sibling rivalry turned revelry. Ages 7–10. Agent: Melissa Edwards, Stonesong. (Jan.) --Staff (Reviewed 10/30/2017) (Publishers Weekly, vol 264, issue 44, p)
  • Sunny the pug's life is satisfying until her owner brings home a younger dog, Rosy, who is very annoying.<br><br>Using numerous minimalist drawings and brief, large-print text, this early chapter book gently relates an adult dog's challenging adjustment to a rambunctious puppy. Sunny mostly enjoys her solitary life: a morning snack (if her human remembers to put it out), followed by yoga, a little television, arranging her stuffed toys, and maybe a nice nap. The arrival of exuberant Rosy makes all of her customary activities hard to enjoy. Then Rosy accidentally throws Sunny's favorite toy out the window and later, feeling guilty, runs off to find it. Sunny knows her duty and goes to locate and bring back the younger dog, in the process discovering that she's come to love her little sister. Ahn's spare illustrations are the stars of this show, using just a few lines to evoke emotion, drama, and especially humor. Although many pages include just a sentence or two of text, some of the words, such as "surveillance," "anticipated," and "stealthily," will stretch the young intended audience. Considering how brief the text is, the two dogs leap, lifelike, off the pages, Sunny reserved and just a bit surly and Rosy fired with youthful enthusiasm.<br><br>A fun pet romp for new readers of chapter books. <i>(Fiction. 5-8)</i>(Kirkus Reviews, October 15, 2017)
