Planet of the Dogs | Book Review and Giveaway

Since I've already read and reviewed the 2 other books in the Planet of the Dogs series, it only seemed fit that I should review the very first book in the series - Planet of the Dogs by Robert McCarty. This is the story of how dogs came to live on Planet Earth. Of course, it's a fictional story geared towards a younger audience but adults can certainly enjoy this book too.


In my opinion, the book seems like a good read for children ages 8-12. Lily is 9, so I will see if she'd like to take it to school to read now that I am finished with it.

"Long ago when planet earth was a dark place full of danger and turmoil... Visitors came from another planet to help the humans learn about peace, love, loyalty, and courage. They were from the Planet of the Dogs."

What better teachers in these subjects than dogs? The Queen of the Planet of the Dogs discovers that Planet Earth was in a bad place and so she sends down the very first dogs to the Planet Earth to help.

The main characters in the story are two children - Daisy and Bean. They even get to travel to the Planet of the Dogs themselves. I personally think it would be awesome if such a world did exist. I'd love to visit some of the places in the book. There's Shepherd Hill, Poodletown, Retriever Meadows, Muttville, Hound Dog Hamlet, and Shaggy Corners.

Biscuit Town?! Sounds tasty... 

After reading through the book a little, Shiner informed me that she'd most like to visit Biscuit Town on the Planet of the Dogs.

Simply put, there is a lot that us humans can learn from our furry canine companions. This book is great at showing just how compassionate dogs really are.

Planet of the Dogs is available on Amazon as a paperback book or for your Kindle.
