Ulysses the Befuddled Basset

It has been a while since I’ve blogged about books for kids, so I want to get back to doing that.

Ulysses the Befuddled Basset by Emma M. Glover is a good one to start with.

It’s about a dog  - obviously a basset hound -  who tries to sound like other animals. He finally uses his real voice and saves a child’s life as a result.

This is an important moral for kids to learn. Be who you are and don’t try to copy other people.  

But the book isn’t at all preachy-teachy. It’s a fun read and the colorful illustrations by K. C. Snider capture the story perfectly.
