This bad dog better behave, or he'll be banished for good! Meet Monty. He's an energetic pup who gets into trouble like it's his full-time job. His house has lots of rules. But sometimes he has trouble following them. Here are some things that distract Monty from following the rules:

The smell of gym shorts in the morning.

The prettiest pooch on the block.

An evil parrot with an evil plan.

If Monty can't follow the Dog Rules, he'll be in the doghouse for good!

This book is both unique and entertaining. The story is told from the viewpoint of a pet parrot, Coco La Rue is the pet parrot of the Lane family and she wants their pet dog, Monty, gone. The book is not in a paragraph form, it's almost written with a comic book feel but without as many pictures. The reader easily feels like they are Coco. Coco La Rue gives the reader lists, visuals, and rules that she thinks Monty should follow. When he doesn't, which is often, Coco is sure to try and let everyone know about it. Coco's quick wit and hilarious sense of humor kept me and my six year old son laughing constantly. We fell in love with the entire family, yes even Monty.

I think Coco La Rue is an author to watch. This is her first book, but what a fantastic start! I plan to be on the lookout for her future books and cannot wait to see what she has in store for young readers. This is a great book that a young reader can read by themselves, or a book that the entire family can enjoy together. All in all a superb first book and I highly recommend it!
