Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.

Slapstick comedy, easy to read

My kindergartener absolutely ate this book up. He begged to read it in the first second of downtime and he loved that he was able to read it generally independently - wasn't able to read every word, but certainly enough that he could enjoy it by himself. Fast moving plot with lots of gags and silliness. Aside from the basic premise at the beginning - that the head of a dog is sewn onto the body of a man after an accident that leaves both injured - there is only mild slapstick violence and nothing else objectionable.
