Los Diggities, Dreams and Nightmares by Jeanie Cunningham and Elisabeth Thormodsrud is an entertaining audiobook approximately 45 minutes in length about a young dog, Oso, who wakes up after a nightmare surrounded by his older friends, Xena and Oscar. Oso explains his nightmare to his friends, and they share their nightmares to calm him down. The nightmares include Xena almost drowning in a swimming pool to Oscar's car accident - even though these were actual experiences, not dreams. But apart from the nightmares, they also have good dreams of chasing rabbits. The stories are mainly centered around their fear of abandonment and good and poor treatment from people. Oso learns from the older dogs, and as they share their stories, they learn more about each other. Soon Oso is no longer scared to fall asleep and dream.
Los Diggities, Dreams and Nightmares by Jeanie Cunningham and Elisabeth Thormodsrud is terrific. The characters were entertaining, and credit should also go to the narrator, Auntie Jeanie, who most ably created unique and lovable voices for the three dogs: Oso, Xena, and Oscar. Oso is the curious and innocent young puppy, Xena is the sassy and street-smart female dog, and Oscar is the older male who is carefree, happy-go-lucky, charming, and a wise old soul. I loved listening to this well-performed audiobook, and I found myself smiling throughout and long after the audiobook had ended. It was easy to relate to all the stories shared by the dogs, some sad, but all endearing you to the characters. Los Diggities, Dreams, and Nightmares is creative, delightful, and entertaining.
