    1. I received a review copy of this book and this is such a fine book to read to your children I loved it so much and I do believe it is a very useful way to spend some time with the little one, while inspiring a love of books and animals.There is a strong moral angle to Muffy s story and a quite real one, since this is a true event, as indicated by the author While the illustrations help the child relate to the action, the final part where the author tells the real story is for the adult reader a [...]

    6. Dog friendly children s fiction, about the importance of friendship and empathy, this short children s book, in theory, ticks all the boxes.The injured Muffy has become scared of interactions, but when another dog is hit by a car, Muffy finds the courage and empathy to help them through the tough times.This was a very interesting concept of a book with cute photo type illustrations, and a dyslexic friendly font There was a sweet story line with some lovely life lessons And yet the story felt a l [...]


    7. Sometimes complex concepts like pain and empathy are best understood by children through stories.The plot revolves around a dog who suffers an injury so painful that she starts detesting other dogs Yet, when she sees another dog suffering from similar pain, she empathises and exhibits compassion For the what why and how you seriously need to read this story.What is striking about this book is the fact that the story has a deeper meaning I felt that it was an allegory Like George Orwell s Animal [...]

    11. Muffy Valor by Karl Beckstrand is a cute book that teaches children to help and love animals I loved the fact that the the story is real and Karl chose to shared it with children These situations in real life are not always the best to tell kids, but Karl did a great, tactful job in how he chose to tell it The story has a happy ending and is great way to talk about the issues of having a hurt animal and the consequences to the traumatized animal It helps children to understand how the same situa [...]

    14. Muffy is a dog, who after having been bitten by a bigger dog, doesn t like dogs at all Problem is that her family brings in another dog.A beautiful story for children to let them know how animals are emphatic with the pain of others beings A good reading for a night story so the children can go to sleep with a big smile on their littles faces.I voluntarily reviewed an advance copy of this book.


    15. A wonderful story of friendshipThe first thing I noticed about this book were the incredible illustrations They told the story along with the text and it was a great story After being hurt, Muffy is wary of any other dogs, and he s also angry Valor is a lost dog who was also hurt, and Muffy s family found him and took care of him It s a great story of friendship and even fear of being hurt Children as well as adults can learn a lot from these two dogs The best part the entire story.


    16. This was a sweet autobiographical story about a dog named Muffy who hates other dogs after being attacked and how she finds out that not all dogs can be bad when she meets Valor This was cute and sweet It would be a great read for any animal loving children out there.I received a free ebook from the author in exchange for an honest review.


    17. The wounded can heal, and compassion often flows from scars Trust may come slow to one who bears wounds, but pain has its own language and can build bonds in unlikely places, bringing healing to both ends This tender story reminds us of hope, as two dogs find peace in sharing Darleen Wohlfeil, Story Monsters Ink magazine

A story about two dogs who, against the odds, became friends, and the people who cared for them I enjoyed reading about Muffy and Valor The story was well told, and the pictures went well with the story being told I received an ecopy from the author for review This does not affect my review.


    19. Really liked this book Great illistrations Good message for kids Sometimes something scares us but we need to look past it when another is hurt and open our hearts Kids need to learn compassion for others and that just being there can be enough Would recommend this book Look forward to reading from this author.


    20. Story of two wounded animals who became friends Artwork is full of expression, and children who love animals will readily identify with the dogs and their situations This story could also be a learning tool about healing, forgiveness, being kind, and making friends.


    21. Sweet story of friendshipSweet story of a dog learning to be a friend after getting hurt and being afraid to be around other dogs It is extra special because the story is true.I found the artwork appealing and it added to my enjoyment of the story.


    22. A true story, and a young boy s adventure with his dog The illustrations are wonderful, both dogs and Carlos and all the humans This is a book for the yong at heart.
