If you like the Puppy Place book “Buddy,” you will love “Snowball.” This book is about two kids named Charles and Lizzie. Their dad comes to pick them up and there is a puppy at the gas station waiting for them. The puppy is sick so they take it home to foster him. Charles named him Snowball. Charles has a grand buddy who loves puppies so he sneaks Snowball in. At the end there’s a cute surprise. I think that the book is sweet. “Snowball” is funny because all of sudden he runs all over when he’s better. Snowball is cute when he goes to sleep on a homemade dog bed. A nice surprise happens at the end. At the end, his Buddy gets a present of … if you want to know what it is, read the book!
I think that you should read “Snowball” because the puppy is funny. If you like realistic fiction books you would love “Snowball” because what happens could really happen like when Snowball got better with help.
Charles and Lizzie wanting Snowball reminds me of the time me and mom wanted Lacey and my dad and my brother, Mason, wanted a boy dog. My friend, Hannah, likes "Snowball" because in the beginning she likes the jokes and when they get Snowball he is sick but gets better.
I recommend "Snowball" to people who like books with dogs that get fostered because that’s what happens to Snowball. I rate this book 5 ***** because the ending is so cute.
If you go and buy this book I guarantee you will love it!
