    I just didn't get it. The illustrations are sweet and I suspect many children will love some of the humour but it was caught between trying to be semi-serious (about how we can all make a difference) and extremely silly. Also, 'why' the mayor is a dog is never really explained. It was as if Scheidt and Harmon were trying to put in too many things and the pieces didn't fit. I will say though, that there were moments that made me chuckle (and my boys) but they mostly revolved around Aaron (the you I just didn't get it.

    A fun book with a lot of heart! There are a ton of funny gags and silly jokes that will keep young readers giggling, but also a great story with message about working together to make your community a better place for everyone.

    A delightful adventure about being kind and taking care of each other. Illustrations are beautiful and the story is funny and sweet. Plus there’s a bonus mini comic that teaches kids to contact their local representatives! 10/10 would vote for Mayor Good Boy’s re-election.

    After a dog named Good Boy is elected as mayor of Greenwood, the town is divided. During his first speech as mayor, a group of angry constituents storm the city hall. Abby gets her younger brother Aaron to willingly expose his stinky socks thus creating a diversion to rescue Good Boy. In gratitude for their effort, Good Boy’s chief of staff, Ms. Monica, offers the siblings a job to work with in the mayor’s office.

During his first speech as mayor, a group of angry constituents storm the city hall. Abby gets her younger brother Aaron to willingly expose his stinky socks thus creating a diversion to rescue Good Boy. In gratitude for their effort, Good Boy’s chief of staff, Ms. Monica, offers the siblings a job to work with in the mayor’s office. Their first order of business is to enhance the public image of Mayor Good Boy with all the people in town. Can Abby and Aaron help get the town on Mayor Good Boy’s side by exposing Old Man Mervis for his dastardly deeds? Schiedt’s humorous plot and Hamron’s energetic illustrations will bring smiles and giggles to readers. Not only will kids laugh out loud especially at Aaron’s gross antics, but also they will learn about how they actively get involved in their own community. I especially liked seeing Abby’s confidence grow and the reinforcement of teamwork makes the dream work. Following the story is The Mayor Good Boy Pledge promoting positive change and a mini-comic on how kids can contact elected officials to voice their concerns. Tutorials on how to draw Mayor Good Boy, Abby, and Aaron will support budding ilustrators create their own adventures. Two more books in the series are forthcoming-Mayor Good Boy Goes Hollywood in 2022 and Mayor Good Boy Turns Bad in 2023. Thanks to Random House Graphic for sharing an eARC. Mayor Good Boy publishes next month on August 31, 2021.

    Graphic Novel I received an electronic ARC from Random House Children's Publishing through NetGalley. Upper elementary readers will love the humor in Scheidt's story. The overall theme of a talking dog as the mayor will appeal to a wide variety of readers. Each of the characters' quirks - human and animal - are played up and over the top.

Each of the characters' quirks - human and animal - are played up and over the top. Readers will connect with them and wonder what they will try next. Good Boy, Abby, Aaron and Ms. Monica work together to promote the town and save it from some potential disasters including escaped zoo animals and a flea infestation. Even the gentleman who opposes a dog for mayor was introduced in a funny scary manner. Readers will laugh at his antics and over the top schemes to get rid of Mayor Good Boy. The artwork is fun to study and readers will pick up on further details and hints on action to come. A quick fun read that will appeal to middle grade readers who are looking for something silly.

    Mayor Good Boy is a new, full-color graphic novel series where a talking dog is elected mayor. This book made me literally laugh out loud. Not everyone in the town is happy with the new dog mayor and there's a protest on inauguration day. Then, there's a flea pandemic unleashed on the town and everyone has to wear flea collars!

He has two young human assistants that help him with things like writing and opening doors and there's a freat activism angle to the action. Mayor Good Boy just wants his town to be a better, kinder place, but there seem to be enemies around every corner trying to stop him. The plot is spot-on hilarious and empowers kids to make their own communities better. Great comedic timing and just a touch of gross-out humor thrown in for good measure.

    Hmmm... There might be a sequence of extended skits where the town mayor is a talking dog (heck, that mayor in Talkeetna, Alaska was a cat, and didn't have to speak (as far as anyone knows)), but bring in annoying siblings co-opted into his ideas and projects, unfunny but oh-too-recurring jokes about dog naps and cheese and too many references to barfing, and this series opener proved it really was not up my street.

    Delightfully silly story of a town where a talking dog is elected mayor. Mayor Good Boy hires two kids, the practical Abby and the gross-out-joke-loving Aaron, to help him run the town. Shenanigans and fart jokes ensue as they duke it out with a cranky citizen who doesn't want a dog for mayor (spoilsport) and will do anything to get Mayor Good Boy kicked out of office. Ends with an uplifting messages about doing good for your community and a mini-comic about how to contact your political represe Delightfully silly story of a town where a talking dog is elected mayor.

    Very cute story about a dog becoming mayor of town and a cute way of teaching kids that their representatives are working for them and that should they have anything to say that their representatives will listen. Such utopian thoughts.

    Dave did such a great job! So dang charming. I appreciate that there is fun kid jokes without making fun of anyone. Just a really positive book and i like that it is getting kids excited about government. The art is really cute and the movements is so wiggly which gives it such joyful energy.

    a dog inexplicably becomes mayor and precedes to hire two children as his advisors. So many violations of labor practices. Dumb as Dog Man, but not in a good way.
