Bobo and the Fuss: An Epic Tale of Friendship Found is a children’s picture book written by Ammon Brown and illustrated by Tran Dang. Bobo loved his family and enjoyed every moment he spent with his two humans. They would play ball, run around the yard with him and spend hours petting him, giving him treats and letting him know how much he was loved. Things seemed to change, however, when they arrived back at the house where he was waiting one day. They had a tiny human in their arms, and all their focus was on the little, crying creature. Bobo sadly noted the diminished amount of treats, toys, play time and, saddest of all, hugs. He wanted life to go back to what it had been before -- before that little Fuss came along. What could he do to change things? Maybe he could help the Fuss find his own family?

Ammon Brown’s children’s picture book, Bobo and the Fuss: An Epic Tale of Friendship Found, addresses a sad and unnecessary issue that often comes up when a new baby comes into a household where humans and animal companions have been happily coexisting. While some parents worry that their new baby and their dog won’t get along, Bobo and the Fuss discover that their friendship will be something special and strong -- once everyone gets used to the new situation. I loved how the author made sure to show how pets are family members and people their human companions. I enjoyed watching Bobo come up with inventive ways to help the Fuss find his own home, and loved seeing as the two become best friends. Tran Dang’s illustrations are marvelous! Bobo and his family are beautifully portrayed, and each brightly colored illustration works perfectly with the story. Bobo and the Fuss: An Epic Tale of Friendship Found shares the magic that happens when kids and animals become friends. It’s most highly recommended.
