Bob, Not Bob!
Little Louie sneezes, and his shoe comes off. He’s sick, and when he’s sick he needs his mom. When he calls for her, it sounds like “Bob.” Bob comes and slobbers. Bob is his dog. Of course, Little Louie isn’t happy. He gets sicker. No one can understand him. There’s a translation for some things Louie says because he talks very fuddy (funny). Bob keeps coming when he calls. His teddy bear gets scared. (Even the dog and the teddy bear have expressions.) Will Little Louie ever get better? What is “hodd and smeddy”? Will Little Louie ever get his mom? Read the book to find out.
This book is very silly. My favorite character is the teddy bear. I like all the pictures with the teddy bear in them – especially when the dog lies on the teddy bear. I like going through the book and imagining what each character is thinking by looking at their expressions. Mom looks confident at the beginning. Toward the end, I think her face says, “I have to move to Nebraska without these kids.” This book is easy to read. You can tell when he is saying “Mom” or “Bob” because when he tries to say “Mom,” the “O” has a heart inside instead of a circle shape. I’ll definitely read this book again. I think this book is fun to read if you have a cold or not.
