“CRASH! is geared towards children between the ages of 2 and 6, a perfect age to begin learning about pet ownership... Anyone who has owned a golden retriever, or even a lab will appreciate this book... Children love stories about pets, and this one will teach them the value of owning a dog."
"Author Mayra Calvani carefully chose every word in this book. It just flows perfect, and I really enjoyed the care Marcelo put into giving his puppy just the right name. I was astonished that the colorful, kid-friendly perfect illustrations by Anna Pylypchuk are the work of a sixteen-year-old girl! She is a native Ukrainian and I found her very detailed illustrations just as charming as Mayra's text."

The illustrations in the book are colorful, bright, and sure to catch the attention of any young child. Drawn in a rather whimsical manner, the pictures absolutely bring the story to life. Instead of children just imagining Marcelo taking the puppy for a walk, it’s right there for the kids to enjoy. The colors are bright and bold, but still not overdone. The pictures also help lend to the fact that Marcelo and the puppy are such good friends. Through the pictures, you can see just how inseparable the pair really is... Though I would not say this book has a strong message to speak of, I do think it is a nice tale of friendship. Sometimes that’s all you need out of a book, especially one for a younger audience. And, as I have pointed out, the friendship shows through loud and clear."-- A. E. Jaskiewicz, Front Street Reviews
"Anyone who is a parent with a child that has
begged, hollered, and begged some more for a pet will enjoy Crash and
Marcelo, the little boy who gets his wish. The glee and joy in his cute
little face is described vividly by author Mayra Calvani.
Reading “Crash”, a child and a parent discover the responsibilities that
come with owning a pet. Marcelo also discovers that naming his new family
member is not as easy as he thought. Many ideas come to his head, none
really fitting in with the cute Golden Retriever.
The name he finally picks surprises his parents. But as you read, you
realize this is the PERFECT name... This is a great book to buy for your
child, you know, the one who is begging and hollering and begging some
more for a pet. It will teach and prepare them for the responsibilities
surely to come when a pet finally comes gift-wrapped."
--Lea Schizas, Muse

delight the hearts of children and pet lovers alike." --Swamy Reviews,

ever wanted a special pet as a child will enjoy and relate to this
happy story." --Anne K. Edwards, author of Jeremy and the Dragon
"Crash! is a charming story about a boy and his dog and the special relationship that develops between a child and his pet. Author Mayra Calvani shows off her storytelling talents once again, as she did with The Magic Violin. Calvani has a way of getting right to the heart of children with her touching stories." --Cheryl Malandrinos, The Book Connection Read more
"A principios de este mes he tenido el placer de hacer una revisión de
libro de esta autor. El libro está en Inglés y puedes ver aquí. Este libro es un cuento de un niño que se le dio un cachorro para su
cumpleaños. El cachorro es muy juguetón y lleno de energía. El niño
tenía el trabajo de dar a su cachorro, un nombre. Y lo nombró ....
"A mis niños les encantó este libro. Aunque no entienden el español
muy bien, sí fueron capaces de seguir el cuento con las ilustraciones
maravillosas. Gracias Mayra por el privilegio maravilloso de la
lectura de su libro a mis hijos." --Pensamientos de una Mama
