Milly loves her dog Hugo. And she LOVES dressing up Hugo in bows.

Hugo loves Milly, but Hugo does NOT like wearing bows. Not frilly ones or sparkly ones or bows with jewels.

Finally, Hugo can't take it anymore and he runs away! But life is lonely without Milly. He starts to think that maybe bows aren't so dreadful after all--and maybe life is better with a friend by your side.

Readers will laugh out loud in debut author-illustrator Samantha Cotterill's delightful picture book about a dog and his girl.

I guess this book is cute, but the gender norms threw me off. It's a cartoon dog in a book. What's wrong with him wearing a frilly bow if it makes his human happy? I definitely wouldn't want to read it to kids.

This silly book had me giggling, and I think it will be fun to share with younger children too! The illustrations are fun and younger children will have a great time deciphering the feelings of Milly and Hugo. A good choice for a shared reading.
