A golden retriever narrates a hilarious, heart-tugging tale of a dog and his humans as he tries to keep his family together while everything around them falls apart.

Ever since Cosmo became a big brother to Max ten years ago, he's known what his job was: to protect his boy and make him happy. Through many good years marked by tennis balls and pilfered turkey, torn-up toilet paper and fragrant goose poop, Cosmo has doggedly kept his vow. Until recently, his biggest problems were the evil tutu-wearing sheepdog he met on Halloween and the arthritis in his own joints. But now, with Dad-scented blankets appearing on the couch and arguing voices getting louder, Cosmo senses a tougher challenge ahead. When Max gets a crazy idea to teach them both a dance routine for a contest, how can Cosmo refuse, stiff hips or no? Max wants to remind his folks of all the great times they've had together dancing ?? and make them forget about the "d" word that's making them all cry. Told in the open, optimistic, unintentionally humorous voice of a golden retriever, I, Cosmo will grab readers from the first page ?? and remind them that love and loyalty transcend whatever life throws your way… (lisätietoja)

This book is one of the sweetest books I’ve ever read, hands down.

I love dogs. I love them so much. My girlfriend often tells me that I act around dogs like I act around babies (and I love babies too). If I see a dog in the street, you bet your ass I’m stopping to talk to it or smile at it, or ask its owner to please pet it. I think dogs are just great.

So, imagine my joy when stumbling upon this book told from the point of view of a dog.

I, Cosmo is told by Cosmo, a golden retriever who isn’t as spry as he used to be, but who loves his family so much that he would do anything for them (including eating an offensive Christmas tree ornament and almost choking to death on it). Cosmo has been with the family since he was a puppy, before the children were around, but when he met the oldest son he decided that he was going to protect him for all he was worth.

But unfortunately, Cosmo is being faced by a problem that he can’t solve – the likely divorce of his family.

Cosmo, however, decides that that isn’t going to stop him, and does everything in his power to make sure that the family stays together. And in his doggy mind, that means becoming a television star.

Honestly, it makes sense when you read the book.

This book is an absolutely adorable story of family love and change, and how sometimes things don’t work out, but the right people can make any situation better. In the background of the story are themes of PTSD and anxiety, growing up, and the different kinds of love a family provides. And the book also has a lovely little side lesson for Cosmo along the way in the shape of a sheepdog and some terrible misunderstandings on Cosmo’s part.

I loved reading this book, and I think that anybody who loves dogs should definitely read it too. I’ll tell you from now, the dog doesn’t die at the end, so all dog lovers are definitely safe with this one. It’s very well written and has some A-plus metaphors in it too, and I really think that more people should read it so that it can become a TV show.

All in all, a 5/5 for the most wholesome book I’ve ever read.

I've always been a sucker for dogs on book covers and this was no exception. Going into this read, I was a bit nervous but could you blame me after "Marley and Me". No. You can't. Nevertheless, this family-filled fluff of a tale was a refreshing break from all the overhyped basic reads I have picked up the last few days. This heartwarming story is about Cosmo, a 13 year old 'older brother' who is dealing with the everyday challenges and struggles of his family day to day lives, arguments, fights, and let's not forget to throw in dance competitions. It was such a sweet and endearing to read from Cosmos POV and to see his perspective on things. Despite the fact that this is ideal for children to middle grade, even adults such as myself can still be immersed in this cute and short read.

Beautiful story told from Cosmos POV, a 13 yr. old Golden Retriever. A simple little "story of my life" mixed with complex issues, like anxiety, shyness, and divorce. This one tugged at my heart and gave me all the "feels". ( )

The perfect book for every child whose dog is their very best friend in the world. ( )
