Luize Pastore – Dog Town

 

This book is cute, a sort of middle grade/children’s book that follows the story of a young boy and an army of talking dogs as they try to protect their local area from being redeveloped into a concrete jungle. It’s also set in Riga, and it’s written, illustrated and translated by Latvians and published in English, making it a cool way to introduce kids to a different culture through the form of a badass adventure.

In fact, it’s the illustrations in this book which are the best part of it. They’re done by Reinis Petersons, a very talented illustrator who I was lucky enough to meet and who drew a fridge magnet for me. They really help to bring the story to life and I was particularly happy with the maps that are included because they also form a part of the story. It does a great job of making you feel as though you’re really in Riga, and it’s also just a pretty good kids’ book. It’s aesthetically pleasing, too.
