Notso Hotso is about a dog named Anthony. The story takes place when Anthony is in his house and starts to shead his skin. He keeps scratching his skin that it go all over the floor. His owner starts to see all the hair and she call the vet to make a appointment, but the vet said that they have to come on Thursday. When Anthony goes outside he see his neighbor the cat. He doesn't like the cat beacuse the cat always makes fun of him. When he goes to the park the other dogs tell him that he has some areas on his skin that has no hair on it. When his owner sees him with almost no hair, she takes him to the vet. When they get to the vet, she said that all she can do is shave all his hair off. After she does that, Anthony goes and runs out to the car and wants to go home. When he gets home he goes to the park and sees a dog standing in front of him. The dog doesn't move so Anthony starts to howl and everyone starts to go to him. They try to help the other dog and he becomes a hero in the newspaper.

I would give Notso Hotso to a person who would get a dog like Anthony. If they are getting a dog like him then they should read this book. I liked this book becasuse it was funny. Anthony is a dog who always has something to do if it is chasing dogs in the park to trying to go into his owners bedroom. Notso Hotso is a book for a person any age. I would love to read books like this one again!

Why do bad things happen to good dogs?

It's a dog's life for Anthony. Not only is he lacking the respect
he deserves from the neighborhood dogs and cats, but an
skin condition has him frantic and frazzled. And just when
Anthony thinks things can't get worse, he finds himself on
vet's table. What she has in mind for him involves an electric
hair trimmer and is likely to cut away any shred of street
credibility he has left.

Accented with antic illustrations, this wickedly funny fable
about embarrassment will have young readers flinching and
laughing out loud at the same time.
