Reviewed by Jacqueline Ruiz for Readers' Favorite

In “The Further Adventures of Koko and Moochee” by J.R. Hardin, we meet Koko and Moochee, two dogs who are always getting into adventures. In this story, Koko and Moochee are after Stewart and his gang of thieves. The bandits have just robbed a jewelry store and Koko and Moochee, having had a previous experience with Stewart, are determined to turn them in. The two dogs are joined by Tango, the cat, and together they embark on this new adventure!

I found this book fun to read. It was interesting to read from the point of view of the dogs. They are so small, yet so brave! I think any child will enjoy this book as well as its predecessor. Hardin has a way with words and vivid imagery. I could picture every scene described as well as the anxiety the dogs felt at times when they thought they would get caught by Stewart and his friends. One thing I especially liked about this book was that some chapters had drawings. This reminded me of when I was a little girl and I loved to read books with drawings. It really highlights what you are reading because with the drawings you can really see what the author is trying to convey. For example, I pictured Koko as a tannish dog and in the picture I saw that he is actually black! I can’t wait to read what other adventures Koko, Moochee, and Tango will get into!
