"Author  Michael Aloi brings to life his love of children and dogs and hopes it inspires others to experience

the joy of having a pet and the positive impact it can have on all of us, especially children" .... Amazon Publishing

Hear the voices of Charlie and Chuck brought to life! 



Anyone who has a four-legged family member understands the superpowers our pets have. Now imagine if we could spread

that positive spirit of love, peace, and happiness to everyone. It might just make the whole world a better place. A boy named

Chuck  soon discovers his own personal happiness and self-assurance when he meets his new furry best friend Charlie. Together, they embark on a mission to spread joy and happiness to everyone.

This is a heartwarming tale showing us what we can accomplish if we believe in something and someone we meet (even if that ‘someone’ is a dog) helps us make that dream come true.


The book includes positive affirmations to help all children improve their self-confidence and empathy. It also helps to promote     the spirit of pet adoptions and all of the organizations that are sheltering animals awaiting adoption.

Believing in yourself!

From the moment I started reading this story I knew it would be one I would want to share with my granddaughter and students. What makes this book so special, is children can relate to the main character. All of us go through times of anxiety, and this shows how a child starts to problem solve with help from his family due to to his missing dog. Definitely add to your collection. Denise

Seriously one of the best ones we have read for a while!

I am a teacher and early literacy/reading specialist. One of my private tutoring students and I stumbled upon your Charlie and Chuck book, and I need to tell Michael that we are absolutely LOVING it!  (Both of us)  :)  It is amazing, entertaining, kind, relevant, and uplifting. Seriously one of the best ones we have read for a while!  (Of course, we are both dog lovers.). Sandra C.
