Rescue dog, Joe, has settled into a comfy life of lots of love and cuddles with the Tuttles and their young daughter, Mary.
He doesn’t understand their constant need to pick up his well-placed poo and place it in a trash bin, but it’s a small price to pay for such a good home.
When Mrs. Tuttle dog-sits for her sister, Joe’s perfect world is upended by the brash Mo.
She’s loud, aggressive, and always in his way. Ginormous Joe is miserable and cannot wait for the annoying fluffy dog to leave.
Innocent teasing by another dog reveals some truths hidden by both Joe and Mo.
This is an adorable story about first impressions, misconceptions, and personalities. Its simple, easy wording allows for any young child to not only understand the story but to apply the lessons to themselves.
And the illustrations are absolutely exquisite!
I had to re-read passages not because they weren’t clear but because I got lost in the artwork! The beautiful full-page drawings in warm colors enhance the story and will mesmerize any child… and adult.

Ginormous Joe’s Annoying Friend
Illustrated by S C Cunningham
Do you have a child that has trouble talking to people? Or expressing their feelings?
Here is a story about dogs with the problem of communicating their feelings, and how they solve it together. The Tuttles enjoy walking their dog, Ginormous Joe. But one day, they bring home a new friend, another dog named Mo. Joe and Mo don’t seem to hit it off. She is always ignoring him and not wanting to play. One day, Joe realizes that all he needed to do was reach out and talk. This gave Mo a chance to tell him why she never would play with him. She was shy. The awkwardness between them evaporates, and they become friends, all from finally being brave enough to tell each other their feelings.
This is a great book to show children how to communicate to solve their problems and work through their feelings. It will make a great addition to any child’s home collection or teacher’s read-aloud library.
