When I first saw this book, it was around the time I’d requested a children’s picture book to review with my 6yr old godson Pickle, and – as I do love a good life lesson – the title of this book, PUG – How To Be The Best You, sounded perfect.
I adored this book. I mean LOVE loved it. I adored Eleanor in all of her weirdness. She’s amazingly written and the prose (ie. her voice) – through her thoughts and dialogue are mind-blowingly good. This was a rare occasion on which I both did and did not want a book to end.
Gail Honeyman won a number of awards in Scotland and the UK for this book, and they are most certainly well-deserved.
