Magoo is a cat with a magical power who discovers he can use his gift to help others. In this silly, rhyming book, with a most unusual hook, readers young and old will find that kindness and laughter are greater than gold.
I chose to read this book after receiving a free e-copy from the author. All opinions in this review are my own and completely unbiased.
I really did wonder if I should accept this book to review, but I’m glad I did. It’s about Magoo, a cat who likes everyone including mice and dogs. He has a special “gift.” His poo smells so bad that people run away because it smells so bad!
When Magoo comes across a puppy mill, he knows right away he has to save the puppies from the evil men. And he knows that his magic poo will do the trick!
The story is told in rhymes, and it’s silly which makes it even better for kids. The last line says it just right: “May kindness always pour from your heart and wazoo.” I can’t wait to read this to my grandkids! I can imagine their dads will get a kick out of the story too.
