LoveReading View on I, Cosmo

The story of one dog's attempt to save his family, become a star, and eat a lot of bacon

Wise, funny, and filled with warmth and heart, this is Charlotte's Web meets Little Miss Sunshine: a moving, beautiful story, with a wonderfully unique hero, from an incredible new voice in middle grade fiction - perfect for fans of Rebecca Stead and Kate DiCamillo.


I, Cosmo Synopsis

Cosmo's family is falling apart. And it's up to Cosmo to keep them together. He knows exactly what to do. There's only one problem. Cosmo is a Golden Retriever.

I, Cosmo Press Reviews

This gem has all the warmth and joy of Homeward Bound, and is making me want to get a golden retriever immediately. - Catherine Doyle, author of The Storm Keeper's Island

Cosmo's narration combines wit, heart, stubbornness, and a grouchy dignity, all ably tugging at funny bones and heartstrings alike. - Kirkus (starred review)

I adored this, a genuine feel-good delight with the most lovable animal narrator I've read in ages. - Fiona Noble, The Bookseller

Like any good dog, Cosmo is so funny, friendly, and loyal that he quickly became a dear friend, so much so that when I finished reading the book, I missed hearing his voice and picturing his shaggy face. Come back, Cosmo! - Jim Gorant, author of the New York Times bestseller The Lost Dogs
