Help Me Mr. Mutt!: Expert Answers for Dogs with People Problems by Janet Stevens and Susan Stevens Crummel

From the author/illustrator/sisters who brought you And the Dish Ran Away with the Spoon I can't remember the last time I fell this much in love with a picture book!

Mr. Mutt delivers a ton of laughs and a lot of good advice to his loyal following; whether his readers have issues with their people dressing them up, or bathing them too often, Mr. Mutt has advice on how to make them see things the canine way! Mr. Mutt doesn't just offer advice, he has some handy visual aides as well....pie charts, line and bar graphs as well as pictograms all show there is more than one way to skin a cat.

And speaking of cats...not everyone is happy with the advice doled out by Mr. Mutt. The Queen, as she is known to her public, has many catty comments to add to Mr. Mutt's advice. Eventually Mr. Mutt goes too far and the Queen takes matters into her own paws. The final pages as well as the end papers, sees the story out to its end. Or does it?

Be sure to check out page ____ on Mr. Mutts advice on how to steal a bed from a child. I have a biiiiiig dog myself and will be watching to see if this letter was from him!

Check out Help Me Mr. Mutt for a fun read.
