Quotes & Awards

  • “Kellgren’s pacing is perfect for enhancing the humor laced throughout as the children struggle to keep their enterprise a secret. She reflects the story’s wide range of emotions—from excitement and enthusiasm as the kids build ‘the hotel staff’ with new friends to the miseries that accompany a move to a new community. With the quavery voice of Aunt Alice and the bright sopranos of the children, Kellgren propels listeners to the satisfying ending.”


  • “Young readers will love Andi and her hotel guests and will be on the edge of their seats to find out what happens. The conflicts are real and the solution is believable…recommended.”

    " What a fun childrens' book! Both my brother and I liked "Hotel for Dogs". It was a charming, childhood story. After all, wouldn't every pet-loving kid relish in the idea of creating a hotel for doggie visitors? Sounds like a terrific idea to me. I wish that I could join in the with the characters in the book. If you're looking for a fun book with new original storyline concepts, this should be the one you pick up. "

    " what i learned from this book is that when you go somewhere you might not like it so you don't want to be judgemental. also i learned that if you start a dog hotel and your aunt is allergic to dogs you might want to make sure that your aunt doesn't get near any dogs in your hotel. "
