Eddie and Bingo are the kind of heroes children will love and parents will want to be part of their family’s life. Carmen Stenholm, MWSA Reviewer

Reviews for Eddie and Bingo: Destination Christmas

Eddie and Bingo: Destination Christmas is a sequel to Eddie and Bingo: A Friendship Tale. And like its predecessor, it is a wonderfully moving tale. This time the theme is about the bittersweet challenges those in the military face when stationed on distant soils and ships during the holidays. They have much fun and adventure, but also loneliness. The climax has a heartwarming twist that is truly delightful. Dwight Jon Zimmerman, New York Times bestselling writer and president of the Military Writers Society of America

Eddie and Bingo: Destination Christmas continues the story in the first Eddie and Bingo book and opens with a "Dear Reader" letter that introduces new picture book readers to the scenario, which revolves around a young Naval combat photographer and a tiny puppy discovered on board the ship, which was adopted by the crew and named Bingo.

More than being the story of a man and a dog, however, Eddie and Bingo: Destination Christmas covers naval deployment and tours of duty, offering many specifics to a younger audience than usual about the experience of serving in the military.

Eddie and Bingo: Destination Christmas is highly recommended as a light-hearted yet realistic picture book examination of the world of a deployed naval man.”

D. Donovan, Senior Reviewer, Midwest Book Review

About the Books

I didn’t find Bingo—Bingo found me. He was our guardian angel at sea. Eddie
The Real Bingo
The Real Eddie

Eddie and Bingo books are based on the true story of Eddie, a young photographer, serving in the U.S. Navy during the Korean War. Bingo, a little lost pup, found a crew of homesick sailors before deployment to Japan. Bingo was more than just a mascot. He was a companion that forged strong bonds over the Pacific Ocean and into the hands and hearts of little orphan children during a time of war.
