Miss Olive Finds Her Furever Friends - Children's Book Review and Giveaway


Book Overview:

Written by Susan Marie, the book is the second in the Miss Olive trilogy in The Doggy Diva Diaries, which is recommended for ages four through nine.

Miss Olive Finds Her Furever Friends continues the story of a little Italian Greyhound with three legs who is adopted by a loving family in the award-winning first book in the series, Miss Olive Finds Her Furever Home. In Miss Olive Finds Her Furever Friends, Miss Olive learns that it’s her birthday and that her parents have planned a special celebration which will include treats, presents and friends. Her party is nearly ruined when she runs into a couple of grouchy dogs at the park who proceed to bully the poor pup. She realizes that true friends will stick by her and won’t join in with taunts from bullies.

About the Author:

For over fifteen years, Susan Marie has been spreading the word about puppy love through her nationally syndicated weekly radio show, The Doggy Diva Show. On her show, Susan interviews pet care experts, dog trainers, authors and representatives from animal rescue organizations. Past guests include Bob Barker, Dean Koontz, Julia Cameron, Alison Eastwood, and America's Veterinarian, Dr. Marty Becker. The Doggy Diva Show can be heard on Pet Life Radio, iTunes, Google Play, Stitcher and Speak Up Talk Radio.

Aside from radio, since August 2007, the Doggy Diva (Susan’s nom de plume) has contributed a regular column to Suncoast Pet Magazine with her lighthearted look at all things diva-licious in her bimonthly editorial feature, Diva Delights. The column originally came from the perspective of Sophia, a previous rescue dog of Susan’s, and is now penned by Miss Olive. Along Florida’s Suncoast, the name Miss Olive is synonymous with the bringing together of homeless pets to loving families everywhere.

Susan is a member of the Society of Children's Book Writers and Illustrators as well as the Dog Writer’s Association of America and the Florida Writers Association. A devoted champion of animals, Susan donates a portion of the proceeds from the Miss Olive book to various animal rescue services. She’s passionate about passing along the love of animals to future generations.

My Review:

In September 2019, I reviewed a book called Miss Olive Finds Her Furever Home. I loved the cutesy illustrations and the overall theme of the book.  Now I've had the privilege to read the second book in the series, Miss Olive Finds Her Furever Friends.

This book follows Miss Olive as she becomes acquainted with her loving family.  Then it's Miss Olive's birthday and, on her way for special treats, she comes across a dog park.  All of the dogs, with the exception of two, are happy to see Miss Olive.  One brave dog comes across and stands up to the bully dogs.  It's there that Miss Olive realizes how happy she is to be around others of her kind who celebrate in her special day.  It's a short, sweet story that's sure to make any young animal lover happy.  Beings that it's based around Miss Olive's birthday, this book would make a great birthday gift for a young child.  Not only do they get to read the story, they will also learn about the real Miss Olive who the book is based from.



Win It! 

One person will win a hardcover book copy of Miss Olive Finds Her Furever Friends.

My favorite dog "breed" is mutts :-)

They're smart, less prone to congenital health issues, and cute as can be, each in its own way.
