    4. Well, this might be a "pet project" and not on par with say, The Knuffle Bunny, but I'm partial to Alan Cumming, alternative families, and above all, DOGS!! I primarily rate based on illustrations and whether I like it or not or makes me laugh or cry. Then other considerations come in - location, author, jokes, politics and messages to kids. So, any book with dogs, lovely illustrations, set in that wonderful city, with witty jokes, written by a talented actor and with a great message for kids, i [...]

    5. 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!

    6. 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.

    7. Cute illustrations take us on an adventure as we follow Honey and Leon in their quest to follow their dads and protect them when they leave on one of their many trips away from home. The story is lacking a bit, but our puppy protagonists are fun characters who children will enjoy.

    8. This has wonderful illustrations with a silly story. The dogs are cute and silly and love their owners so much that they follow them on their trip protecting them in various disguises. I also love how the dogs have such interesting personalities.

    9. Cute story that will connect with Kindergarten and 1st grade. The dog owners in the story are two male partners, and it was nice to see that illustrated in a picture book without a whole lot of fanfare.

    10. 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.

    11. 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.

    12. 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.

    13. 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!

    14. 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.

    15. 2.5 stars. I am not usually keen on celebrity KidLit authors, so I can admit my bias and say that I love Alan Cumming. The illustrations are fun and I love that this was a family writing project!
