Poojo the dog was born without back legs, but this doesn’t slow him down…With sparse text, cartoonish critters, and just the right amount of peril, this readaloud is a shoo-in for storytime. A good amount of the story is told through Charrow’s rambunctious, flowing digital and gouache art… Listeners are bound to want a romp with Poojo again and again.

A dog born without hind legs must think fast when his wheelchair gets a flat tire…With straightforward brevity (most spreads have at most one sentence), the text treats Poojo’s condition with matter-of-fact good humor, simultaneously acknowledging the occasional inconvenience of his disability and demonstrating coping skills. Adding to the cheerful tone, the typeface’s large, well-spaced letters curl slightly at the ends, recalling Poojo’s wagging corkscrew tail. This upbeat tale of an irrepressible pooch is sure to leave readers smiling.
