My thoughts on Fetch
Fetch is an adorable short picture book about where dogs come from. See, every pup comes from a far-off planet where dogs spend their days driving around in cars doing pretty much what they want and enjoy leash-free living. Then one day, a dog takes a huge leap of bravery and flies away. When he lands, he finds himself on Earth, surrounded by unfamiliar sounds and scents. Can you imagine what that would be like for a dog with their insanely keen sense of smell? Fortunately, he also discovers the meaning of friendship and love with his human boy.
The illustrations in Fetch are beautiful! Some pages feature just a simple drawing of a boy and his dog, but others are richly detailed and give insight into a whole new world. I love that the story is short enough for “one last bedtime story.” It’s also a fun way to get your child ready to meet a new family dog! Read it with your child before going to pick out your new canine companion. I highly suggest checking out the picture of the dog planet and asking your child to imagine what the pups do at each of the places! It’s a great way to encourage imaginative thinking.
Author Adam Glendon Sidwell:
In between books, Adam Glendon Sidwell uses the power of computers to make monsters, robots and zombies come to life for blockbuster movies such as Pirates of the Caribbean, King Kong, Pacific Rim, Transformers and Tron. After spending countless hours in front of a keyboard meticulously adjusting tentacles, calibrating hydraulics, and brushing monkey fur, he is delighted at the prospect of modifying his creations with the flick of a few deftly placed adjectives. He really enjoyed writing 81,854 less words in his new picture book FETCH than he wrote in his first EVERTASTER novel, and hopes that you will like the ones he picked. Besides, FETCH has pictures.
Adam has also been rightfully accused of writing the upcoming novel CHUM.
Praise for the book:
“If you need & want a book for younger children that does not involve zombies, monsters, or overdone “superhero’s”, and just want a good old fashioned great story, perfect illustrations, and a captivating experience, then “Fetch” should be ordered quickly.”—Carol Anne Merrill Miller
“Simple, yet engaging, storyline appeals to readers of all ages and the illustrations glue your eyes to pages!” –Doodles
“The art work enchanted, enthralled, and grabbed me in ways paintings can and often do.” –Kindle Customer
