Nellie Belle is a loveable pup who has fun, fun, fun everywhere she goes.
The illustrations and story are simple and straightforward in this picture book about a fun-loving puppy. Written in a simple rhyme that desperately felt like it needed a melody to go along with it. In fact, I scoured the internet looking for such a song, thinking it would be like the Napping House, but no luck. Frankly, on its own the rhymes felt a bit clunky, as I had difficulty finding the non-existent beat. I don't think this ruined the story, it just felt like it was missing something. So somebody get on writing a song for this book, because it really needs it.
