Fantastic picture book. Everyone will get a kick out of the adventures of Mabel an adorably naughty French bulldog living a live of luxury in the Hamptons. The illustrations are gorgeous and adults will get a kick out of the celebrity 'cameos'. Cannot recommend enough.

This book is actually based on Nathan and Delvin's dog Mabel. Mabel is not as messy as Marmaduke. Yet he can be a cousin of Maramduke. Mabel is loved a bit too much, pampered a bit too much and when her owner's are away... watch out. Mabel is considered a naughty dog. And has the resume to go with it. Mabel's "issue" is what is good for his human's is good for her. Mabel sets out to prove this point time and time again with disaterous consequences, leading into a epic event involving her humans.

The authors and the illustrator Dan Krall created an extensive backstory for Mabel. And it works. I also love the introduction of her friends Smarty-Cat and Scaredy-Cat, who belong to Mabel's neighbor, a 360 of Mabel's human's. I hope that the next book in series has the cats featured in the story line.

But this book is about Mabel and no one else. And she has earned a spot in my heart. ( )

Mabel, a bulldog who lives with her humans in the Hamptons, is naughty. In fact, she's not just naughty, she's VERY naughty. She is constantly getting into trouble, but she can't help it, it's just in her nature.

What could have been a really cute book took an unexpected turn when the story turned to crude humor to get the last laugh. Honestly, I didn't feel that this in any way fit the tone of the rest of the book. It's unfortunate that someone of Nathan Lane's comedic genius would need to turn to something so banal, but here it is; this would have easily been a 4 or more star review from me otherwise.

Dan Krall's illustrations are full of whimsy and overall, the story was quite charming, espousing the importance of acceptance, family, and love. If it weren't for that one unnecessary turn, this book would have been perfect for me. Hopefully in the next book, Lane and Elliott won't feel the need to reduce the comedy to potty humor. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 148143022X, Hardcover)

A pampered pup takes center stage at her parents’ party in this charmingly hilarious picture book from film and Broadway star Nathan Lane (of The Lion King and The Producers fame) and Devlin Elliott!

Meet Mabel, the fanciest French bulldog the Hamptons have ever seen. Mabel is many things: sassy, classy (and sometimes a bit gassy!), but especially...naughty! Mabel’s always getting herself into trouble—and with style like hers, can you really blame her? When Naughty Mabel’s parents throw a party and try to leave her out of the fun, of course she must take matters into her own perfectly pedicured paws. As the hilarity ensues, Mabel and her parents learn that through thick and thin, naughty or nice, they’ll always be a family, just as they are.
