I, Cosmo

(1 reviews with an average rating of 5 out of 5)

Publisher: Nosy Crow

Cosmo and Max are best friends, but though they were born at the same time, they have very different worlds. For Cosmo is a dog, and Max is a boy, and 13 in human years is very different to 13 in dog years.

What they do have in common is their love for each other and for their family. As Cosmo tells the story of one dramatic year in his family’s life, he and Max fight their very hardest to stay together, even though their beloved family is breaking up all around them.

This charming, original story brings together the fun of canine freestyle dance and the heartbreak of divorce into a single, moving story about families, and what happens when no amount of effort and love is enough to keep them together.

The story is suitable for readers aged 8 and above, but the kind of vocabulary used (for example: Cosmo says ‘prolonged periods’ instead of ‘for a long time’) means the book may challenge less-confident readers.

Fans of heartwarming doggy stories such as A Dog Called Homeless and What’s That in Dog Years will love this book.
