A review by mat_tobin
Mayor Good Boy by Dave Scheidt, Miranda Harmon


I just didn't get it. The illustrations are sweet and I suspect many children will love some of the humour but it was caught between trying to be semi-serious (about how we can all make a difference) and extremely silly. Also, 'why' the mayor is a dog is never really explained. It was as if Scheidt and Harmon were trying to put in too many things and the pieces didn't fit. I will say though, that there were moments that made me chuckle (and my boys) but they mostly revolved around Aaron (the young, gross brother) and fart jokes.
