Good Boy, Nacho! by Kristine N. McQuown is a beautiful children’s story about the exciting adventures of a boy and his lovely pet and best friend. After begging his parents for a while, Benny’s parents finally let him choose a pet. At first, he cannot decide. Should he pick a cat, a bird, or a frog? In the end, he settles for a dog. Two weeks later, he goes with his parents to select the dog he wants to adopt. He chooses a curious Chihuahua who he names Nacho, a unique and charming name for his friend. Life with Nacho is exciting. Every day, Benny and his four-legged friend have new adventures. Nacho gets into trouble sometimes, but he is the best friend Benny could have asked for.
