Reviews for Buzzy and Thomas

'The story is delightful and what makes it more appealing is the fact that Thomas Jefferson, who became the President of the United States, had a dog named Buzzy, a horse named Caractacus, another dog named Bull, and a mockingbird called Dickie. The illustrations are lively and colorful and they breathe life into the characters and give the story a good pace and movement.' --Reader's Favorite

From Amazon:

"Adults will enjoy reading this book to their children, or children who can read will enjoy this book. Buzzy reveals all the feelings that all of us might feel when we are moving from one place to another. The illustrations by Fatima Stomato, are beautiful, bright, vivid and colorful. They depict all the adventures of Buzzy and Thomas."

"My daughter and I enjoyed this wonderful book about Thomas Jefferson's move to the President's House from Monticello, told from the point of view of Jefferson's dog Buzzy. My daughter especially enjoyed the happy ending when Buzzy realized he did indeed have a friend in his new home. Looking forward to more Historical Tails!"

"I bought this book to read to my grandson who will start first grade in September. He loves books about real people and I think he will enjoy this book very much. The pictures were just beautiful and the story was interesting. I would recommend this for students who might be researching one of the Presidents or for any child who enjoys books about pets and their owners. Well done."

"This is a great way to get children interested in history. Linking animals into historical figures lives makes it easy for children to see that famous people are just like them."
