A buddy adventure through the forest, starring two best-pal pooches!

Two best-friend dogs, Schnozzer (the smart one) and Tatertoes (the cheerful one), set off into the forest on a journey to visit Tatertoes’s mom. Along their adventure, they encounter bees, bears, quicksand, characters from fairy tales, something called “nose spiders,” and lots of yo-yo action.

Their adventures are told as a series of vignettes, propelled by easygoing but giggle-inducing humor. That plus Rick Stromoski’s lush, illustrative style and charming character designs make for page-turning, chuckle-filled reading.


Schnozzer & Tatertoes Take A Hike! is a great children’s graphic novel that provides great reading entertianment for young readers. The comic style makes it engaging, entertaining and fun to read. The neat detail we noticed in this book is the black and white theme and only a few pages were in color. It made this book stand out for us.

We love how different fairytales were infused in this story with the comic duo of Schnozzer & Tatertoes. Nikki loved reading this book and her favorite part was when Tatertoes found his mom. Nikki loves happy endings afterall. 😉
