Meet Lucy the Wonder Weenie

Lucy the Wonder Weenie written by Nina Clark and illustrated by Sara Pulver.
Lucy the Wonder Weenie is written by Nina Clark and illustrated by Sara Pulver. It's a 32 page paperback available for purchase at Amazon. I found Lucy the Wonder Weenie to be one adorable diva dog. The art is pure whimsy. Plus who doesn't love a snappy dressed dog in a cape in heels? The story is equally as clever and whimsical. Lucy the Wonder Weenie manages to turn what her family doesn't love about her (her constant licking) into her strength. So kids learn a groovy message and that dog licks are really like kisses. Lucy is one fab pooch and I look forward to her future adventures. Viva Lucy! 5 stars

  14. Looks really cute! Have you heard of What Will Hatch? It's a book illustrated by Susie Ghahremani (from BoyGirlParty), and it's whimsical and cute and just came out! You might love it, and baby Whimsy too! I love her illustrations (she has an Etsy shop and I already bought a few things there... just perfect!).

    1. I'm saving it for her. Her canines are all coming in at the same time and she's consequently in eat paper mode. ;) But I can't wait to share it with her soon. She's going to love it.

    2. Oh that is hard. Kaitlyn's did the same. All at once. But the good thing was that at least the process wasn't drawn out even longer. She is now cutting her two year molars. It makes for some aggressive paci-biting. Yes, we still have not taken her paci (she calls it her binky) away. :/

  29. I love a good whimsical tale, and this sounds quite wonderful. I'll have to keep it in mind for my niece! Thanks for sharing, Juju. :)
