Your Reviews

Reviews are like oxygen for an author. Without reviews, other reader might not find out about how wonderful a book is. If you enjoy a book, please take a minute to write a quick line on your thoughts. Below are some of the reviews I have been thrilled to receive for my books from bloggers and readers and the press.

“I cannot recommend Puppy enough to readers that want a fun and educational story to read to their children and eventually have those children reading it to them. I could honestly feel the love and attention to detail that Patricia poured into every page, and cannot imagine a child not loving this wonderful story!”


“My daughter loved this book. She enjoyed pointing out what was happening in the illustrations and listening to what the puppy got up to.
This is a great book for adults to share with their young ones time and time again. I certainly will.” ***** WHISPERINGSTORIES

“Puppy: 12 Months of Rhymes and Smiles will be sure to bring a long-lasting smile to all dog lovers for many years to come. I very much enjoyed Patricia Furstenberg’s look into the typical first year of a dog’s life, and am looking forward to reading more of her published works in the future.” ***** READERS FAVORITE

“Grown up or not, Puppy, 12 Months of Rhymes and Smiles is a must-read for children that will teach them love and tenderness towards animals.”***** NADANESSINMOTION

It was sweet and fun to read to my two year old son. He liked listening to me reading the story out loud, and he also enjoyed looking at the adorable illustrations in the book. It’ll definitely be a story that will appeal to young readers (and parents with kids too young to really start reading yet).” ***** BOOK REVIEWS BY JASMINE

“This book is definitely aimed at younger children and will delight them as an adult reads it out loud to them. However any dog lover will also love this book and will no doubt smile as they do so.” ***** GILLY918

Joyful Trouble, a book that reads like a movie





“I loved how the story of Joyful Trouble was spread over several days for the children, which is realistic to how bedtime stories are told. I liked how childlike Tommy is, and how Ana loved him despite his getting carried away in puddles. Being able to handle a dog helped her grandfather handle Tommy, and tell the magnificent tale of who Joyful Trouble was, why he was a special Navy dog, and what happened in the end which made me rather teary.” (10/10E, NAYU’S READING CORNER

“The characters are adorable, especially Tommy, whom I absolutely loved. He’s super cute and funny and makes the book light, whereas his sister Ana is the grown up one who keeps asking her grandfather to tell her more about Joyful Trouble and his adventures. Overall, Joyful Trouble is a must read for all ages.” NADANESS IN MOTION

“The writing and description of Furstenberg is delightful to read. It’s a story that can be read by children or read to children. I know a young child who loves dogs and she would really love this book. Adults can also read it and enjoy the story and adventures within. To find out what happens to Joyful Trouble you will have to find out for yourself. You won’t be disappointed.” ***** BOOKS ARE MY OBSESSION
