“I could tell you everything about the Bates family—things you’ll never hear from anybody else. Then this book could be titled ‘Spunky Tells Everything.’ But it’s not fair for a Dog to tell everything about his family. A family deserves at least some privacy and loyalty. So I will only tell all. Almost all.”
Written by Ann Cameron and illustrated by Lauren Castillo, Spunky Tells All is a humorous and insightful story told from a dog’s perspective. He gets somewhat frustrated trying to get his humans to understand his habits, but things get worse when an arrogant Balinese cat by the name of Fiona moves in. Will they *ever* become friends? Spunky Tells All is part of the Huey and Julian series. Also just a note—if your kids happen to be working on social cognition or social thinking, this book is an excellent exercise in perspective-taking, or putting yourself in someone else’s shoes.
