Emma's dog Toby is constantly getting into mischief. You name it; he does it:


·         Gets into the garbage


·         Eats the bread Emma's dad just baked


·         Barks at night


·         Does a little rug-wetting


·         Chews buttons off clothes


Emma thinks Toby just needs extra attention. So she:


·         Walks him


·         Brushes his fur


·         Sings to him


And yet Toby's bad behavior continues. So Emma takes him to dog training classes. . .where Toby is a star pupil. He graduates with honors.


But he goes right back to his acting out. Emma is at her wit's end, so she takes Toby back to dog training school, where the teacher offers to keep him for a week for "special training." When he comes home, Toby is amazing. He no longer gets into the garbage; instead he takes the garbage out. He bakes bread and vacuums. On and on, this canine paragon goes performing chores and being perfect. But, as we find out on the final spread "no dog can be perfect always" and Toby vanishes through a die-cut hole in the page.


Kids will relate to and get a kick out of a hero who doesn't always do the right thing . . .and even when he does, slips up in the most hilarious way. Cartoony illustrations add to a clever story that's enjoyable for adults and kids alike.
