Genre: Fantasy
Review: This book is a great example of Fantasy because it has animals talking, animals riding bikes, skateboards, and grocery carts. This book brings together friendship, working together, and not giving up when an obstacle comes your way through dogs coming together to adventure past their fences.

Stanley thinks the grass is greener on the other side of the fence. So when he finds a whole in the fence he escapes and joins up with other canine friends. They accidentally take a wild ride on miscellaneous wheeled vehicles. Full of humor, energy and excitement! ( )

Genre: fantasy

Review: This is a good fantasy because it is story told through a dog's perspective. The dogs do not have human characteristics but they can talk to each other and describe what they see through their own eyes.

Character: Stanley is a good protagonist because he is represented exactly how a dog would think if he was trapped in a backyard day after day. The way he acted when he escaped from the backyard is just how a dog would act and think.
