Book 170: Doug Unplugged

Doug Unplugged, by Dan Yaccarino, Alfred A. Knopf, 2013.  Preschool to Early Elementary.

Doug Unplugged is adorable.  It is such a sweet, gentle, loving story that you can't help but say "awwww" when reaching the end of it.  Yes, it does end with a hard-to-miss moral, facts vs. experience, but the conclusion is endearing rather than annoying.  And it's about a robot.  Little boys really like robots.

Dan Yaccarino's artwork is always exceptional:  Engaging, colorful, timeless and adorable.  Just like the story of Doug Unplugged.
