Join us on this virtual book tour for the adorably illustrated chapter book Mrs. R. Snugglesworth, Attorney-at-Law, written by Amy Flanagan!
About the Book
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?
About the Author
Amy Flanagan is an Instructional Designer and children’s author living with her family in the Chicago suburb of Batavia. She began writing Mrs. R. Snugglesworth, Attorney-at-Law in early 2021 to stay busy during the long pandemic winter. She wanted to create something that would make kids (and adults) laugh out loud. She is already working on the second book in the “Mrs. R.” series. Like you, she wonders what the ‘R’ stands for.
About the Illustrator
Jon Davis is an award-winning freelance illustrator living and working in Cumbria, UK. He always loved drawing as a child, thinking up characters and stories – paints, pencils, felt tips, crayons, anything would do. So he decided to study Illustration at Glyndwr University, Wrexham. He works digitally in Photoshop with a tablet and pen because the ‘undo’ function saves him from the depths of frustration.

Mrs. R Snugglesworth is written by Amy Flanagan. This book is 96 pages. I read this with my 11 and 9 year old sons and we really enjoyed it. We have three dogs and it brought up great conversations to what if our dogs were trying to solve other dogs problems and legal issues. Every day when Mrs. R humans take her to the Bark Park - and after serving on jury duty Mrs. R is pulled aside and asked if she has ever considered attending law school. Mrs. R previously had wanted to be Ski-Instructor-Electrician-Puzzle-Champion, but a lawyer? that is not what Mrs. R had considered. It was fun to go on the adventure and see what dog law school was. Now I wonder what my dogs have been up to when they go to the dog park... have they been secretly getting a degree?
The illustrations in the book tie the story together nicely. There is a lot of humor and wit sprinkled in throughout. My children and I really enjoyed this book. My 9 year old took this book into school to show his teacher. We cannot wait to see what Mrs. R is up to next!
Thank you to the author, publisher and Children's Book Review for allowing me to read a copy of this book - all thoughts are my own.
