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
