The first thing that struck me about this story was the illustration of Beasley. It made my heart melt! I think kids will immediately fall in love with Beasley and connect to him as he goes on his unexpected journey! Beasley’s family moves from the city to the country. Mom and Dad each thought Beasley was with the other. Poor Beasley! His family left without him. Fortunately, Beasley is smart, brave, and has a good nose, so he starts looking for them. On his journey, he makes some new animal friends and asks for help. The animals show him where they live, but no one can help him. Beasley doesn’t give up and eventually, finds his family and his new home. The illustrations are beautiful in this book and if you look closely, there are some very clever additions. This story gives parents a lot to discuss with their children: what it would be like to be lost or left alone; asking for help; kindness to others; using good manners; and the importance of family. I loved it all and the beautiful illustrations capture the essence of this sweet soft story, despite the uncertainty of Beasley’s journey. Ms. Russell donates a portion of the proceeds to animals in need. A great job, author / illustrator Rosie Russell! This story deserves 5-stars
