  1. Doonsey says, “Wow!!! Thanks so much Bookroom Reviews! That was a super-wonderful fun book review!!! I’m so glad you enjoyed my beach adventure! I didn’t even know what a Beach Buddie was until I went exploring! If you visit Grammy Pags Stories website,, you will see that Grammy made an activity and coloring book all about my Beach Adventure. There’s matching and counting and coloring and even more knock knock jokes. Thanks again!!” love Doonsey and Grammy Pags
