Book Review: Still Surviving Henry: The Untold Stories by Erin Taylor Young

23 Mar

Still Surviving Henry Cover_800pxDescription of Still Surviving Henry: The Untold StoriesThe rogue torpedo of a dog is at it again! Henry hauls author Erin Taylor Young and her readers into mischief, mayhem, hilarity, and heartwarming adventure. Come join Henry, canine catastrophe extraordinaire, as he romps through an all new collection of true life—and near-death—tales. You’ll laugh yourself silly—and maybe even shed a tear or two—as Henry shows that there’s a lot more to life than merely surviving.

For anyone who’s read Young’s first book, Surviving Henry: Adventures in Loving a Canine Catastrophe, it won’t be a surprise to learn that she couldn’t fit all his antics into one book. For readers who haven’t yet met Henry, here’s to your full-tilt initiation.

My review: Erin Taylor Young’s first book, Surviving Henry: Adventures in Loving a Canine Catastrophe, was a delightful and inspiring read, so I couldn’t wait to dig into this new release, and it didn’t disappoint. With her unique take on the world and her witty humor, Young deals with the perils of living with a husband, two growing sons, and a canine catastrophe named Henry. My favorite story involved a lump of a rising bread dough and yet another trip to the vet (where the dog, I think, must be greeted with shouts of “Henry!” reminiscent of those for “Norm” from Cheers.)

I give this book five stars for the superb writing, for the many times I laughed out loud, and for the moments when tears filled my eyes. You’ll love it, and since it’s free, you can pop over to Amazon right now and download it for yourself. I promise, you won’t be sorry.
