The Adventures of Honey & Leon Reviews

  • Edward Sullivan

    Two pooches travel with their two dads.

  • Read  Ribbet

    Not the biggest fan of Hollywood kid authors. In this story, two dogs tire of being left alone when their dads travel the world decide to follow closely behind. Kids will enjoy trying to spot the dogs in the illustrations since they are trying to be discreet about their travels.

  • Kelly

    This book was so cute! I loved that the dogs were like people and they followed their owners. The illustrations were nice and the dogs are cute.

  • Alice

    I liked the story, It is super cute! It isn't very well written.. but it is cute. I love that the dogs take care of their dads. My not so high rating is that it that I fear that the only reason this book was published because it was written by a celebrity! Whatever sells RIGHT?! I don't care that it has two dads... it doesn't bother me at all. I Just think the writing is ok but not great!

    Illustrations are cute and well done!

  • Mary

    While the story itself is entertaining, the writing is lacking and the two dads the dogs share are not presented in the most appropriate way.

    Young readers may enjoy this story about two dogs who are tired of being left home alone when their human companions travel. But this time, Honey and Leon decide they won't be left behind. After all, they need to protect their two dads. I'm not sure how they manage to navigate the airport and pay for tickets, but the two dogs manage to pull it off, and once they arrive at their destination, they put their protections skills on high alert, saving their human friends from disaster several times. Although they go to great lengths to keep the two men from knowing they are around, as it turns out, they knew it all along. I loved the idea of trying to figure out what one's dogs are up to when they're left to their own devices, but this book takes that wondering a bit too far. It seems as though it might have been easier to just bring them along. Still, many young readers will be amused by all the possibilities here. The colorful illustrations allow readers to see the dogs and humans having a blast on their vacation.

  • Esperanza

    An adorable book that imagines what dogs do while their owners are away. This time, when Honey and Leon learn their dads are going away, they follow their dads on their trip. Full of whimsical illustrations which include many doggie thought bubbles. Written by actor/author/activist Alan Cumming and his husband Grant Shaffer.

  • Peacegal

    3.5 stars-- Awww! Fans of "The Secret Life of Pets" will love this one.

    And I loved that one Dad had a vegan meal on the airplane!

  • Kelly

    Hone and Leon love each other, and their dads, very much, but don't like being left behind when their dads travel. So they decide to tag along on one of the trips.

    Hello, friends! Our book today is

    , written by Alan Cumming and illustrated by Grant Shaffer, a delightful tale of two clever dogs and their loyalty to their human daddies.

    Honey, a rescue mutt with refined sensibilities and a talent for acting, and Leon, a Brooklyn-born Chihuahua who is much tougher than his size suggests, live in the big city with their beloved human daddies. Life is practically perfect, except for one thing: their daddies travel a LOT, and Honey and Leon get lonely and worried about the other half of heir family when they’re separated. One day, upon finding their daddies packing their bags for another trip, Honey and Leon decide that they will embark upon a covert mission: they will pack their bags and follow their daddies across the globe in secret, defending them from baggage thieves and dozing boat captains, watching over their outings and activities, and even joining them for a fancy party – where Honey inadvertently becomes star of the show! Can the dedicated duo keep their cover and get home without their daddies realizing that they’ve had two (furry) tails?

    We loved this one! The story felt very fresh and original, and was clearly written and illustrated with a great deal of love (Honey, Leon, and their daddies are based on the married author and illustrator and their real-life dogs). I loved the detail of the characters’ accents – Honey’s posh British dialect, Leon’s Brooklynite, even Cumming’s Scottish brogue if you’re feeling froggy – which allowed for some real fun when reading the book aloud to JJ. Honey and Leon themselves are a hoot, and captured gorgeously in exciting, colorful illustrations that brought them, their daddies, and their world to life. The length was great, and JJ and I both really enjoyed this one. A wonderful book to celebrate the bond between dogs and their human families, and it’s Baby Bookworm approved!
