A Pug Like Percy is the first book I have managed to finished since August! It was such a cute, magical and wonderful read that left me feeling all warm and fuzzy inside.
A Pug Like Percy follows the adorable Percy. He is left at the rescue centre by his owner. Having no idea why his owner, that he loved had abandoned him. He was giving up hope until he meets Gail. And they form an instant Bond. Soon the Pug has a new family but with Jenny being in and out of hospital and Gail and Simon's marriage on the rocks can little Percy the dog be the Christmas miracle they need to hold them all together?
I have never read a book written from a dogs point of view. It was interesting and delightful. It reminded me of the movie "The Secret Life of Pets" a little bit. I adored Percy from the get go. Why? Because he's a freaking PUG!! A Pug. Have you seen how cute those dogs are? Percy is confused and hurt that his owner left him. He is scared no one will ever love him again but when he meets Gail the love between them is magical. Gail just gets Percy and the two form an instant bond between human and dog. Percy is just loved by all his new family and he loves them all right back.
Percy's new family is struggling though. However, Percy and his new park friends are trying their hardest to fix things. The gang of dogs are a mixed bunch and seeing what they can get up to is hilarious. Makes you wonder if dogs really can understand each other and try to get up to mischief when their owners aren't looking. LOL.
The story is a perfect Christmas read if you aren’t into Christmas books that are full of romance. Yeah, there is a little romance in the book but it's mainly focused on Percy and how he can make his family happy again. It's full of hope and cheers and just a perfect quick read to snuggle up under a blanket and enjoy on a winters night.
A Pug Like Percy is Fiona's debut novel and if this is her debut I am in awe. As I mentioned I haven't been able to finish a book since August because I have been in an awful slump. Even my favourite book couldn't bring me out until I started this little treasure. Percy definitely performed a miracle on me.
