Review: Ryan to the Rescue by K. S. Brooks and Mr. Pish

Genre: Children’s Picture Book


“Ryan the Corgi was a happy dog -- until his family moved. The dogs at his new school aren't as nice as his old friends were. Some of them are even downright mean to him. Can Ryan learn how to turn the tables on the bullies?”


K.S. Brooks has been writing for over thirty years. An award-winning author and photographer, she has written more than 30 titles, is currently the administrator for the superblog, and is founder of 'Authors for Hurricane Sandy Library Recovery' and the 'Liberty Library' for soldiers and veterans.

Mr. Pish is a curly-haired Jack Russell terrier who has traveled the USA and Canada to spread the word about outdoor learning and literacy. He loves exploring and introducing people to new places they didn't know existed! Mr. Pish has written 10 books, 10 years of calendars, and one app available at iTunes and the Google Play store.”


Ryan is a young Corgi who will always be small compared to other dogs. He is adorable with his Orphan Annie eyes you can’t help but love him. However he is being picked on because of his size and the new kid at his school. Ryan’s father reminds Ryan of his strengths because he will always be small.

This a cute and smart story that kids will be able to understand and identify with. This book promotes self-worth which needs to be reinforced with all children as they are growing up. Ryan to the Rescue would be an excellent addition to any home or school library.  

This is a Mr. Pish approved book and he gives his endorsement and more helpful tips at the end of the story. There are also several resource links you may find helpful.

I read Ryan to the Rescue on my Paperwhite Kindle which is black and shades of gray and white. I imagine young readers would enjoy the story more with a color tablet. There is also a Ryan to the Rescue coloring book for more enjoyment. This is a creative way to help visual learners.

Format/Typo Issues:

I read an ARC version, However, I didn’t notice any issues with proofing or formatting.

Rating: ***** Five Stars

My pleasure, Ms. Brooks and Mr. Pish! The educational value alone makes this a great book. And Ryan is such a cute little dog I think every child will enjoy his story.
