This post is in partnership with The Children’s Book Review and Amy Flanagan.
Have you ever wondered what your pet dog was thinking when they look at you with their puppy-dog eyes. When my dog tilts his head it’s very cute, but it seems like a great way to communicate. If you love dogs and try to communicate with them, you will absolutely love Mrs. R. Snugglesworth, Attorney-at-Law.
In this book, Mrs. R. (as she likes to be called), wants to become an attorney, so she attends the law school, which meets in the Bark Park. Everyday her humans take her there. There are so many hilarious tales of how she lives her life with humans. Law school isn’t easy, and she has to deal with a know-it-all dog named Maple Lane.
This book makes a fun book for bedtime stories where you could read a couple of chapters each night. Children will enjoy looking forward each night to see what trouble Mrs. R. has gotton into next.
ABOUT THE BOOK
Written by Amy Flanagan
Illustrated by Jon Davis
Ages 5+ | 90 Pages
Publisher: Whitefox | IBN-13: 9781915036094
About the Book: Mrs. R Snugglesworth is 70 pounds of low-to-the-ground PRECIOUS. She is the Best at Finding Slightly-Used Sandwiches and the Best at Loving Ham—and now she’s looking for her next big challenge. To her surprise, she finds it at the local Bark Park, when she discovers a passion for the law. Dog law, that is.
In two wags of a tail, she enrolls at Wagsworth Legal Academy, eager to become a lawyer. Turns out, it’s not that easy learning to be the Best at Law School. But when Mrs. R. learns that her friend Pitter-Patter needs help, she can’t wait to take on her first case. Only one small issue: she hasn’t quite finished her law degree. Some dogs might consider this a problem, but not Mrs. R! After all, Pitter-Patter needs a lawyer, and she is ALMOST a lawyer. Which everyone knows is practically as good as being a lawyer, right?
She’ll just juggle her law classes, naps, walks, power naps, chasing tennis balls, snacks, naps, and work on Pitter-Patter’s case at the same time! What could possibly go wrong?
ABOUT THE AUTHOR
Amy Flanagan is an Instructional Designer and children’s author living with her family in the Chicago suburb of Batavia. She began writing Mrs. R. Snugglesworth, Attorney-at-Law in early 2021 to stay busy during the long pandemic winter. She wanted to create something that would make kids (and adults) laugh out loud. She is already working on the second book in the “Mrs. R.” series. Like you, she wonders what the ‘R’ stands for.

ABOUT THE ILLUSTRATOR
Jon Davis is an award-winning freelance illustrator living and working in Cumbria, UK. He always loved drawing as a child, thinking up characters and stories – paints, pencils, felt tips, crayons, anything would do. So he decided to study Illustration at Glyndwr University, Wrexham. He works digitally in Photoshop with a tablet and pen because the ‘undo’ function saves him from the depths of frustration.
