The Blurb

Six year old Isabella usually is the one who has a babysitter. But when her enormous puppy named Baxter creates a mess and prevents her mom from working, Isabella's mom asks her to babysit him. And Isabella knows exactly how to do it! Or does she? First, Isabella gets Baxter dressed...TWICE! Next they have a snack, but not without a CRASH and a BANG. And that’s just the beginning. Join Isabella in her very first picture book filled with lots of humor and adventure as she tries to keep Baxter from making a bigger mess.

My Two Cents

I think the cover of this book is super cute.  I was looking forward to reading it!  There are so many times when judging a book by its cover just doesn't pan out, and unfortunately this was one of those times.  The story is very simple--there is no real story arc or hook at all.  This book might still appeal to an early reader because of its simplicity, but otherwise, there might not be quite enough meat to keep your reader satisfied.  But, as always, I advise you make your own decision--no two people read the same book!
