Editorial Reviews

This picture book was written and beautifully illustrated by the author, Tabbatha Bella. The illustrations are done in a soft water color which nicely mellows out the story topic of the death of a dog. It is also an advocacy for families to rescue an animal from the Animal Shelter.-Rockin’ Book Reviews The quality of the cover (and back cover), and the illustrations inside, are both alluring and beautifully colored. I did enjoy going through the parent’s memories. It is a nice heartfelt story that kids can relate to-also rhyming is fun. The text is easy to read.-Florida Writer’s Association RPLA Committee  Goodbye Poonjab by Tabbatha Bella is a heartwarming story of loss and love. It’s a beautiful story that teaches children to love despite the loss they will face in their lives, and it also encourages them to adopt pets from local shelters. The illustrations are bright and colorful and they not only breathe life into the characters, but also give good pace and movement to the story and scenes.-Reader’s Favorite
