Author(s): Nina Laden
The boy in this book has the most boring dog in the world. Or so he thinks ...until one morning when he opens the door a little early and sees his dog jump out of a limousine. That night he decides to follow his dog, and that's when the fun starts. Turns out his dog leads the lifestyle of a Humphrey Bogart-type, treating our protagonist to a true nighttime adventure where he learns where dogs go to relax and sees what they do while their masters are fast asleep. A terrific read aloud, Nina Laden's story will have everyone captivated by the coolest dog around.
