    A splendid collection of photos of the bull terrier that has captured social media's hearts. This photographic collection captures Jimmy Choo, the lovable bull terrier, as he is thrown into a pure white world with scenarios ranging from dangling over Pride Rock in Lion King to taking E.T.'s place on the bike with Elliott, these images were meant to put a smile on your face. Mantesso's creativity knows no bounds while imagining his best pal in different situations. The touching prologue also provides a glimpse into how when life might throw you a mentally challenging curveball, you can overcome it with unconditional love and humor. This is a book you will want to add to your collection, and also to have as a coffee table book for your company to browse through.

    This book started as a popular series of photographs on Instagram. The photos are very good and the added illustrations are frequently amusing and clever. This is rather a "one-trick pony" idea and I would not expect the book to have a sequel, but this book is heartwarming, humorous, and fun.

    WE LOVE JIMMY AND RAFAEL!!! First of all, I am a little biased. We do have a bull terrier, who we adore. Jimmy is so adorable and Raphael Mantesso is very creative. I have followed him on instagram for quite some time. This is a great book for our son to look at the pictures. And we love our bully so this is a great coffee table book to show our friends when they come over. Rafael has a great story about how this project and art came to be. A definite must-buy for all dog lovers!

    Cutest book ever. I love bull terriers, and jeez, this book just is the cutest thing. Jimmy Choo is such an uplifting little pup, and the back story behind the project just really pieces the whole thing together. I have such a bond with my dog, and reading the author's story, just reminds me how very important my dog is to my life. This is the story of real unconditional love and support. Dogs are undoubtedly Man's Best Friend, and this book really paints the picture behind that theory. It's a perfect coffee table read, and everyone that has been to my house is immediately drawn to it, and love the story. They all instantly follow the pair on instagram, which is also my new favorite account! I love Jimmy! The photos are great, and this is really a book for all ages.

Their personalities will shine through and this book really shine a light on how funny they are. you will enjoy this book many times over! Buy it for a bully lover or any dog lover and it will be the gift that keeps on giving.

    The sweetest tribute...from hurt, to healing, to hope. Jimmy's human shares the joy of finding the most amazing way to share his love of this beguiling creature...through simple drawings defining the human experience. I'm over-joyed.
