Mrs. R Snugglesworth is 70 pounds of low-to-the-ground PRECIOUS. She is the Best at Finding Slightly-Used Sandwiches and the Best at Loving Ham -- and now she's looking for her next big challenge.
To her surprise, she finds it at the local Bark Park, when she discovers a passion for the law. Dog law, that is. In two wags of a tail, she enrolls at Wagsworth Legal Academy, eager to become a lawyer.
Turns out, it's not that easy learning to be the Best at Law School. But when Mrs. R. learns that her friend Pitter-Patter needs help, she can't wait to take on her first case.
Only one small issue: she hasn't quite finished her law degree. Some dogs might consider this a problem, but not Mrs. R! After all, Pitter-Patter needs a lawyer, and she is ALMOST a lawyer.
Which everyone knows is practically as good as being a lawyer, right? She'll just juggle her law classes, naps, walks, power naps, chasing tennis balls, snacks, naps, and work on Pitter-Patter's case at the same time!
What could possibly go wrong?

muy bonito todo, el perrito súper cute y las ilustraciones muy bellas.
thanks to netgalley for a copy of this book.
I fell in love with the cover and had a lot of fun in reading this book. It's written tongue in cheek and it can be appreciated by adults and children.
There's a lot of humour, a lovely canine MC, and a plot that flows.
Many thanks to the publisher and Netgalley for this ARC, all opinions are mine
This early chapter book tells the story of an unusual attorney who may get distracted by cheese, but also is great at sniffing out some important evidence! The book is quirky and describes the world from the perspective of a dog, something that children often find really hilarious! This book is a total of about 85 pages, with 15 short chapters, each about 5 pages long. The short chapters and black and white illustrations will help readers who are ready to move on to longer texts but are not quite ready to go without pictures just yet, making this the perfect transitionary book for early and middle grade readers. I could definitely see this book fitting in well in my classroom library and would highly recommend this book to parents and teachers of children in the age 8-12 range. Thanks to NetGalley and the publisher for giving me the opportunity to read and review this book!
Oh my goodness what an adorable story. This would make a charming bedtime story for young readers or even a chapter book for those ready for more.
Mrs. R. Snugglesworth decides to become an attorney and go to law school. She gets her first client, a Great Dane named Pitter Patter, accused of stealing his human's beloved stuffed animal. Except Mrs. R has not yet finished law school. On the day of Pitter's trial, Mrs. R has not yet graduated but she is determined to represent Pitter, so she goes with step 2 to pass (no spoilers - read to find out!).
The story is told from Mrs. R's point of view and she is the Best at Just About Everything. The author is completely believable that she could be a dog and I very much enjoyed the story and the smiles it offered. The book seemed to end with a possibility for more and you can definitely sign me up to read more of them.
Highly recommend for anyone who loves smart doggos and slightly used sandwiches.
This book is overwhelmingly precious and very funny. The title dog, Mrs. R Snugglesworth is charming and sets about earning her law degree in order to help a friend. There’s plenty of jokes that adults (particularly if those adults are lawyers) will enjoy if they are reading it with a wee one. Also, the way the author writes the internal dialogue of Mrs. R is well done and perfectly captures the energy of a derpy, lovable dog.
A delightful read. Will be buying a copy for my niece.
This is really cute and a fun read-aloud. My daughter has enjoyed reading this with me. The format was hard to read, but we can't wait to get the book in our hands and read through it again.
Thank you NetGalley and the publisher for this ARC!
This is a fun book for any child looking to have a longer story and yet still have the childhood silliness of picture books. Mrs. R Snugglesworth gets her law degree and a lot of comedy takes place throughout this story. As an adult I was entertained. Worth picking up - especially if you have an aspiring lil lawyer on your hands.
Mrs. R snugglesswarth attorney at law is called Mrs. R for short. She is 70 pounds mode to the ground precious and the best at everything. So when she is called to jury duty she enjoys it and decide to become a doggy lawyer. Before she can finish though her friends going to need her help and Mrs. R being the best of everything and that includes being the kindest the sides to help her. This week was one of the funniest cutest books I’ve read. I thought it was a children’s book and it can be read to children but as a grown adult I thought it was hilarious. I love that she calls the mom and dad kitchen and vacuum in the kids snicker and crunchy… I also thought it was so funny how shadow was a doctor because for health reasons he stole a man’s steak. They have so many clever jokes in this book not to mention a really nice story and some great insight on how your dog really thinks. I received this book from NetGalley and the author and I am leaving this review voluntarily please forgive any mistakes as I am blind and dictate my review but all opinions are definitely my own.
This is a really cute and fun read, I got through it very quickly as the plot flowed beautifully. It’s funny and quirky, and I think children young and old will like this book so definitely pick up a copy and get cozy.
I thought this was an overwhelmingly adorable and hilarious book! I loved all the little jokes and illustrations.
This book was so cute! I loved it. Amy Flanagan did an incredible job of building the dog world and the politics, laws, and factors it has. It was well written, entertaining, and charming. I hope to see more of Mrs. R!
Mrs. R. Snugglesworth, Attorney-at-Law by Amy Flanagan is a wonderful children's book. I read it along with my son and he was absolutely delighted at the characters and the cute story. Highly recommend this book for readers of many ages. We read a digital galley that was a little hard to read. I'm sure the hard copy of the book would be amazing. I received a digital copy of this book from the publisher with no obligations. These opinions are entirely my own.
what an adorable book. this book is filled with funny jokes, a heartwarming tale, and some fascinating insights into the minds of dogs. i found both the idea of a peemail and dog attorneys to be creative and original. what a cute story, my goodness. for young readers, this would make a sweet bedtime story or even. you can count on me to read more of them as the book left open the option of more.
ARC received via NetGalley, and boy am I glad I did. Mrs. R Snugglesworth, Attorney-at-Law was a most delightful short read. I really want Amy to write more on Mrs. R - she's a hoot and a half!
Just take this paragraph for instance:
Some dogs think jury duty is a real drag and will do anything to get out of it - fake a broken toe, pretend something's in their eye, or claim they have a "bathroom emergency." That's the biggest lie of them all. When the world world is a bathroom, it's never an emergency.
Thanks to the author, publisher and NetGalley for letting me review this book. This book reminds me of the “Martha Speaks” books. This was a quick read and I loved the part about how each hair is strategically placed yet gets vacuumed up regardless. I like how the dog stands by her friends and takes responsibility. The Best at… did get a tad tedious at times.
I expected a picture book and was thus pleasantly surprised when i discovered it was a chapter book.
It's a really cute story about a dog who has a healthy sense of worth as she becomes a lawyer. There are lots of puns and slight perspective shifts with a dog point of view. (The mother and father are The Kitchen and The Vacuum) which had me laughing at several points throughout the story. While some of those might not be fully grasped by a young reader, this story is rich in morals and character development. (Ex: the importance of keeping promises (integrity) or being forthright over lying about a situation).
I feel like this book ended with a sense of completeness but also the possibility of more cases for Mrs. R. Snugglesworth - and I'm here for it!
My only disappointment would be the low number of illustrations in the book. I'd like to see a few more for those young readers who are hesitant to read books without pictures.
I received a dARC from the publisher via NetGalley; this is my honest review.
LOVED this story!! it is cute, funny, exciting and adorable! I found myself laughing at the book while reading it and even read bits and pieces to my husband, as it is just what dogs do! We are now fully convinced that the dogs do actually meet at the park and have a court case there, as they do all come together at one spot in the park! Amy Flanagan is really onto something here! Thoroughly enjoyed reading this and can not recommend it enough! There are some lovely black and white drawn illustrations in this book which gives it some more life, however I don’t feel this is necessary, as the writing makes this story come to live by itself.
