Dexter Bexley and the Big Blue Beastie

I don't know if my daughter picks this every night because she loves it or because she knows how much I love it.  We finished reading this tonight and I said, "I just love this book!"
My kids replied in bored unison, "WE KNOW."
I guess I have said that once or twice. 

Joel Stewart has created such an absolutely endearing book that there is no chance you won't like it.  If after reading it at least twice, you tell me you don't like it, I'm sending you a copy to read until your mood improves and you see what a wonderful book it is!  (However, if everyone says they hate it, I'll know you all are just trying to get a free copy of what you agree is an incredible book!)

I love the illustrations, I love the characters, I love the suspense...and you will to!

Dog Breath

This book is a riot! 
It is all about how sometimes the worst thing turns into the best thing.  A dog with the worst breath for miles ends up saving his family with his deadly breath.

There is a part in the book where some guys say, "Come here Poochie, Poochie."  Oddly, this is my kids' favorite part and they each have to take a turn saying it in their own way.  (It is my favorite part too and I also got to say it everytime we read it!)

There are a ton of play-on-words that are extremely funny and the illustrations are just as entertaining. Dav Pilkey does an excellent job entertaining the whole family with this book!
