Interesting things are happening around the house in Fuzzball’s Enormously Big Little Brother by Kathi M. Nidd. Join the grown-up little Fuzzball as he tries to figure out the emotional ups and downs of his owners, relives memories of being lost and living at a shelter, and deals with the obvious challenges of having a younger brother who is way bigger than he is. Written in third person from Fuzzball’s point of view, you can experience the dog’s thoughts and emotions without the tale being limited in scope or sappy. This short tale is a little over four thousand words long – great for a quick read in your favorite spot or on the go.

I thoroughly enjoyed Fuzzball’s Enormously Big Little Brother by Kathi M. Nidd. What caught my eye about her writing from the very first paragraph were her wonderfully vivid descriptions. My five senses relished the vivacity of her lucid style. I appreciated the simplicity of the story as well as the deeper concepts hinted at (dealing with the inability to conceive, facing and conquering memories of past trauma, and handling new housemates). I also appreciated that all the problems brought up throughout the course of the story were resolved by the end of the book. It made me feel good to know everything had turned out all right. I would definitely enjoy reading more by Kathi Nidd (the book ended with hints of more adventures to come). A must-read for dog lovers! Recommended for folks of all ages and backgrounds.
