My son is 9 and is obsessed with dogs. He’s also a huge fan off the Diary of a Wimpy Kid series so I thought he would love this book. He has read and enjoyed 3 other books by James Patterson: How to be a Supervillain, Pottymouth and Stoopid, and the first Dog Diary book. Surprisingly he didn’t love this one. He did finish it and there were parts that he was clearly entertained by. However, he commented that “it wasn’t the best”. He said that the book portrayed dogs as not being very smart. To someone who sees dogs as God’s greatest gift to the universe, and considers our golden retriever to be his “sister”, it sounds like the depiction in the book did not live up.
