These are the types of books I love to read to my daughter, and I will. This book seems to encourage the young bookworms to explore the possibility of having a ferret as a pet, and I really that position. Thanks for an interesting and very informative review.

The idea of having ferret as a pet seems fascinating. Children can enjoy while reading going through the illustrations and know more about ferrets. Great review. Congrats on BOTD!

This is a lovely way to teach kids about ferrets, especially those who have never encountered them. Glad the book has photographs rather than illustrations. I do hope the book gets improved as I am sure more adults and kids will enjoy the story.

I didn't find children books appealing before, but the more I read the books the more I'm attracted to them. I like that the book is unique and different from other children book, as mentioned in the review. I will read the book. Great review.

A children's book with photographs of a ferret where Chubby has lost his friend, Coco, sounds like a cute book. I've never had a ferret as a pet but this book is bound to encourage children and parents to consider them. Great review!

I think the writer should use a more appealing character for a children's book and something more relatable, personally the story should have made the ferret finding his long lost friend a key factor.

I love ferrets, though I've had to content myself by playing with the pair belonging to a friend. (I'm afraid they wouldn't get along well with my cats. I agree with your comments about having photographs to accompany the illustrations. It's a wonderful idea for those children who have never seen a ferret. I'm going to have to look this one up for my Grandson. Thanks for the review!
