'Boo The World's Cutest Dog' is a collection of short stories in graphic novel form about an internet phenomenon I was unaware of. The stories are short and cute and completely appropriate for a young audience.
There are nine stories that feature Boo, and the other two dogs in the house he lives in, Buddy and Bluebeary. In one story, Boo is received as a birthday present, then goes on to take all the attention away from the birthday girl. In another, the dogs' owner isn't feeling well, so the dogs feel like they have to get their own food from high over the kitchen counter. There are actually a few stories that have this similar theme. Boo becomes famous and has to appear for photo-shoots, and gets a movie role. The final story is done as a series of diary entries, and it's more text than illustration. Also included is a cover gallery for the issues here, including the alternate covers, some of which are photos of the real Boo.
They are cute enough stories and the art is fine. I'm not as much into the cutesy dog fad, so I liked the normal dog sort of stories over the dress up, celebrity fantasy ones. It's perfect for little animal lovers. The stories are short and varied for the most part. There were a lot of themes where food was the focus, but I guess that's what a dog thinks about a lot.
I received a review copy of this graphic novel from Dynamite Entertainment, Diamond Book Distributors, and NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. Thank you for allowing me to review this graphic novel.
