Butler for Hire!
Meet DJ Funkyfoot! He’s not actually a DJ—he’s a chihuahua and a butler!
Meet ShrubBaby! She’s an adorable baby shrub with a taste for thrills, fertilizer, and fame.
Finding a butler gig is hard these days, so DJ Funkyfoot takes a job that’s ALMOST like being a butler . . . He becomes a nanny for ShrubBaby!
A nanny might say no to this baby’s whims, but a good butler always says yes. So when adventure calls and ShrubBaby says, “Let’s go!”, DJ Funkyfoot says, “Very good, m’lady, I’ll fetch your stroller.”

Adorable Shrubbaby is a handful and, for Funkyfoot a butler unable to say no, trouble. The trouble begins when Shrubbaby realizes that Funkyfoot must do whatever she wants, and so one misdeed after another lands them in stinky water. The story moves at a fast, fun pace. The illustrations are engaging and as outlandish as some of Shrubbaby’s antics. Children and adults will laugh out loud and enjoy the adventurous day the two have. I personally liked that the story also ended with a moral: sometimes getting what you want isn’t always what you need. This book is perfect for early independent readers with its short chapters and easy to understand language but would also be a fun read aloud. I highly recommend you add it to your own collection.
