From Goodreads:
Mister Spunky and His Friends is the creation of award winning author, Kelly Preston. She has taken the story line from her book, Real Dogs Don't Whisper, placing it in a picture book format for children to enjoy. 

Mister Spunky and His Friends is about the importance of love, friendship; and, helping those with special needs. Follow Mister Spunky along his journey to the beach, where he meets three new friends; teaching him important life lessons along the way. Parents, if you enjoyed Real Dogs Don't Whisper, your children will enjoy this book for them. There are several pages at the end of the story for coloring activities. 

My Thoughts:
I loved this book.  It is the story of a dog who has a great life, and a cool car.  On his way to the beach one day he picks up a dog he sees crying.  He learned the dog is sad because she is bullied. Then they find another dog who is angry because he felt unloved.  Finally they come across a small dog who is blind.  They invite him along and to be their friend.  As I read this book I thought of who I was going to give it to.  My grand children have lots of books I've given them.  This one needed to go to someone special.  My sister is raising one of her grandkids.  At times she has trouble with her because she feels unloved by her mother.  I thought this would be the best book for her.  There are so many lessons to be learned and it is based on the author's real dogs.  This is a book children will really love.
