Penny & Rio: The Diamond Collar Adventure by: Jennifer Swanson *Review, Contest, and Giveaway*

Thursday, August 26, 2010

    This book is so cute!  My daughter loves it so much, I have to read a chapter to her every night before bed!  Audrey loves any books with dogs, and I think the story is so cute!  Penny & Rio have become a fast favorite in our house.  This is the perfect first chapter book, for any child!  It's only 44 pages, with easy words, and would be great for any kid learning to read, or to read to your two year old at bedtime..LOL!
    A new adventure!  The dynamic canine directives, Penny and Rio, escape from the backyard for the first time in search of a valuable  diamond collar lost by Hannah, the beautiful show dog.  During their search for the misplaced treasure, they encounter Ted, the lovable and energetic collie, Sarge the belligerent and forceful German shepherd, and an obstacle of epic proportions.  But just when it feels like Penny has reached the end of the adventure, the prize is ripped from her grasp.  Solving this new problem will take all the ingenuity and determination these dog detectives can muster.
    Contest details:  Create a jeweled collar for your dog, and send in either a hand-drawing or a photograph of your creation.  Entries will be judged in three categories: most creative, most colorful, and most beautiful.  The winners will receive a $50 BarnesandNobles.com giftcard, plus there are 26 additional prizes, given by drawing names!  For more information, and to enter please visit here!
    Overall me and Audrey both love the Penny & Rio: The Diamond Collar Adventure, book!  It is so cute.  This would make a great birthday present for any child, and a great addition to any dog themed birthday party!  This is also the perfect first chapter book.  I would recommend this book to any parent, but especially those whose kids are starting to read.  And now for the fun, and the giveaway details are below.  Good luck and have fun! :)
