This book is about a boy and a dog who go for a work. The tell their sightings and get scared of Scarface. So they end up running away and going to bed. This book is a fun book for early readers because if rhymes and is easy to follow along. Many of the words repeat themselves and makes it easy for children to feel like they are reading along. ( )

Rhyming book for kids. Well done but ca be a bit of a tongue twister after a while. No real plot just lots of dogs. If you want a good laugh from your kids, read this to them, faster each page! ( )

Delightful doggie names and rhyming rhythm, with humor. This is n=*not* 'rumpus at the vet,' though, so I'm asking the goodreads librarians to fix it. ( )

A funny book! My four year old enjoyed it a lot, he laughed out loud at all the funny dog names: "Bitzer Maloney all skinny and boney" and "Bottomley Potts covered in spots". The drawings are great too, a good dog book! ( )
