My oldest daughter was excited when this book arrived at our door a couple weeks ago, as she fell in love with Kim Norman's previous Percy and Petunia (Pug and Pig) book, "Puddle Pug," about two unlikely friends, a Pug and a Pig.  

Puddle Pug

This is one of her favorite books, and she loves to grab it from the bookshelf to read it from time to time, and will even sit to draw pictures of Percy and Petunia.  So, when she saw that the author put out another book in this series, she couldn't wait to read it.

Together with her little sister, they sat and read this book together, stopping to take in the cute illustrations done by Keika Yamacuchi, which depict Percy the Pug turning into a superhero called Thunder Pug.  Percy takes on this new persona after Petunia wins a blue ribbon at the state fair and doesn't have time for her friend anymore.  But, it doesn't take long for Percy and Petunia to realize that friendship and spending time together is important.  

This is a really cute picture book, and will be well received by fans of Puddle Pug, and those who love dogs like my girls do.  I have lost count on how many times I have sat to read or listen to my girls read this story to me.  And, each and every time, they both get excited as if it was the first time reading it, when they get to the part that Percy turns into Thunder Pug, and goes off and helps his friends out of sticky situations.  Kids, and adults will smile as they read through this cute new picture book, that emphasizes the importance of helping others and friendship.  If your kids read and enjoyed Puddle Pug, or are in need of a new book to read at bedtime, why not consider picking up Thunder Pug, available now?

More about this book:

"What’s a superhero without a sidekick? THUNDER PUG (January 2019) by Kim Norman is the delightful follow-up to the popular Puddle Pugbringing back the adorable pug-and-pig pair: Percy and Petunia!

Percy the Pug and Petunia the pig are the very best of pals . . . until Petunia wins a blue ribbon at the county fair. Suddenly, she has no time for fun and games. But when Percy finds a faded comic book in a puddle, the lonely pug dons a cape and takes on a new persona: THUNDER PUG! Even though being a superhero is exciting, Percy knows he’s missing something. Only when “Pink Lightning” (aka Petunia) joins him, and the two are “side by sidekick” again, are they truly living the heroic life!"
