Kosmo, the king of troublesome terriers, takes trouble to a whole new level! He's a one-of-a-kind, corn-on-the-cob nibbling, ice cream licking, always-into-mischief dog. 

Kosmo's Christmas Delivery is told from the point-of-view of an older, but not necessarily wiser dog, Kramer, who laments the acquisition of Kosmo by his family, especially his girl, Emily Jean. When the inquisitive Kosmo jumps on board the Yellow Package delivery truck a few days before Christmas, Kramer, secretly wishes the pup will be lost forever. He reluctantly agrees to help Emily Jean search the snowy streets of their small town for Kosmo. Through a series of unusual events, the missing terrier finally comes home, but not a moment before his older sibling realizes how much he cares about his young friend.

My thoughts: First, the disclaimer.  "I was provided a free PDF copy of this book. All opinions are my own." That done, I read KOSMO'S CHRISTMAS DELIVERY to my two daughters and they absolutely LOVED it. Adorable! Kramer is the older, wiser, someone grumpy dog who loves his family, but he's used to being top dog, not second fiddle to a troublesome pup! Kosmo is a cutie, but his family is over the moon in love with him and Kramer doesn't know how to process his sudden status of un-important!  

So when Kosmo actually asks out and gets into the story version of the UPS truck, Kramer is a happy dog. Once again, he's the favorite. But his family is sad. So he "helps" look for the dog... 

It is a really cute story and my youngest daughter loves enough she wants a print copy so I might actually become a "verified purchase" of this one.  Or one of our relatives might instead if they gift it as a present this Christmas. And speaking of which, this would be a wonderful gift for your favorite child under the tree. Also great for nurseries, libraries, and day cares. 5 stars.
