Professional Reviews

“A dachshund has an eventful day in this debut picture book by Kat and Scott Arbuckle… Stroganoff is a sweet-looking, energetic protagonist, and the book deftly emphasizes how pets can be important members of families. Young dog owners will find the animal’s adventures relatable as Arbuckle’s digitally altered, cartoonlike photographs colorfully depict him as he sleeps, eats, and plays… A personable work that tells the tale of a day in the life of an adorable pup.”

- Kirkus Reviews

“Kat and Scott Arbuckle’s picture book is a sweet little story about a special member of the family, Stroganoff. Told in simple language to appeal to young readers and illustrated with color photographs of the star himself, Stroganoff, this story will definitely appeal to the young reader…Stroganoff makes a good role model and teacher for young readers to adopt healthy regular habits.”

My 2-year-old daughter loved "My Pal Stroganoff", she hardly sits through reading time, but this book really caught her eye. She enjoyed flipping through the pages, which are vivid and really help tell the story. She would not stop commenting on how cute Stroganoff is.

- Neddy

Charming! A heartwarming book for children of all ages. It will put a smile on your face.

- Jeanne

This book about a floppy-eared dog promotes all the fun and responsibility that comes with being a pet owner. The perspective is about a bone height from the ground, just right for putting oneself in the "paws" of the main character. That promotes empathy and helps kids consider how to treat a pet with real kindness.

We bought a book for my friend's daughters, and they love it. They read it every night.
