Mrs. R. Snugglesworth Attorney-at-Law Review and Giveaway

Disclosure: I was sent a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. I am working with The Children's Book Review and Amy Flanagan for this Virtual Book Tour and will receive a small stipend for my participation. All opinions are my own.

Today I get to share a creative and fun beginning reader illustrated chapter book with you that kids are going to love. It is also perfect for back to school since its main character, Mrs. R. Snugglesworth goes to dog law school in it. The book is Mrs. R. Snugglesworth, Attorney-at-Law by Amy Flanagan and illustrated by Jon Davis. 

From the Publisher:

Mrs. R. Snugglesworth, Attorney-at-Law 

Written by Amy Flanagan and Illustrated by Jon Davis

Ages 5+ | 90 Pages | Publisher: Whitefox | IBN-13: 9781915036094

About the Book: Mrs. R Snugglesworth is 70 pounds of low-to-the-ground PRECIOUS. She is the Best at Finding Slightly-Used Sandwiches and the Best at Loving Ham—and now she’s looking for her next big challenge. To her surprise, she finds it at the local Bark Park, when she discovers a passion for the law. Dog law, that is.

In two wags of a tail, she enrolls at Wagsworth Legal Academy, eager to become a lawyer. Turns out, it’s not that easy learning to be the Best at Law School. But when Mrs. R. learns that her friend Pitter-Patter needs help, she can’t wait to take on her first case. Only one small issue: she hasn’t quite finished her law degree. Some dogs might consider this a problem, but not Mrs. R! After all, Pitter-Patter needs a lawyer, and she is ALMOST a lawyer. Which everyone knows is practically as good as being a lawyer, right?

She’ll just juggle her law classes, naps, walks, power naps, chasing tennis balls, snacks, naps, and work on Pitter-Patter’s case at the same time! What could possibly go wrong?


About the Author:

Amy Flanagan is an Instructional Designer and children’s author living with her family in the Chicago suburb of Batavia. She began writing Mrs. R. Snugglesworth, Attorney-at-Law in early 2021 to stay busy during the long pandemic winter. She wanted to create something that would make kids (and adults) laugh out loud. She is already working on the second book in the “Mrs. R.” series. Like you, she wonders what the ‘R’ stands for.

About the Illustrator

Jon Davis is an award-winning freelance illustrator living and working in Cumbria, UK. He always loved drawing as a child, thinking up characters and stories – paints, pencils, felt tips, crayons, anything would do. So he decided to study Illustration at Glyndwr University, Wrexham. He works digitally in Photoshop with a tablet and pen because the ‘undo’ function saves him from the depths of frustration.

From Me:

What a fun and creative book! Kids will love learning about the secret life of dogs. Can you imagine a dog lawyer? In this book dogs have laws and courts. Dogs cannot do things like squash a bug or intentionally destroy a stuffed animal (that is not their own toy), and when they do, they have to go to court. Dogs communicate by peemail. Let's face it that is somewhat true.  I just don't think they can send actual messages through it. This fun book will have kids laughing, reading and imagining. And let's face most kids love dogs!

This book is a great book for kids who have learned to read and are ready for a bit longer book. There are some illustrations in it but not a lot. The story is entertaining and the perfect balance between an imaginative world of dogs and the real world of dogs. Mrs. R. gets into trouble when she takes too many naps and isn't investigating for her client. Mrs. R. hurts a friend's feelings when she forgets her promise and goes after the fish they find in the grass. There are so many topics you can relate to dog life or even real life and have discussions about kids how those actions made the other dogs feel or would make other people feel. This book would be a fun discussion book for the lower grades of elementary school. I hope you will check it out!
