A very cute story about a dog who is reluctant to make friends with the new addition to the family. The illustrations are adorable and really capture the feelings and personalities of the furry main characters.

Percy is less than impressed when his family brings home a new dog. The fluffy family and neighborhood favorite pup steals the spotlight. Percy "treats" him to a new haircut.
Cute story with a good, simple message - don't let jerks get you down and be nice to others. The illustrations are adorable too!
Percy the dog is jealous of TumTum the new dog in the family. He goes out of his way to be mean, but finds in the end that you can't keep a good dog down. Much like the Grinch, Percy has a change of heart and gains a friend.

Illustrations are detailed and complement the text by flushing out the hatred that Percy has for TumTum. It's the kind of artwork that reveals something new to readers with each rereading.

Both an exaggerated and a realistic read that is wholly entertaining for dog lovers.
Tum Tum is a charming roly poly dog with fluffy white hair and everybody loves him. The family that adopt him have another dog named Percy. Percy doesnt like Tum Tum because he thinks Tum Tum is silly. Instead of accepting Tum Tum's friendly gestures, Percy is playing pranks on him. But in the end, Percy realizes that people like Tum Tum not because of his looks, but his personality. The two dogs then become friends.

Eventhough I'm not a fan of dogs, I still find this story fun.

Liked the art but the story didn't really work for me. As much as I love dogs I find it very hard to believe a whole town would shave it's heads because a dog had all it's hair cut off.
I really, really liked the illustrations, but thought the book was a little mean. (I know it was a moral thing and all, but I was sad.)

Story about realizing that perhaps you should give a new friend a chance. Nothing special, but worth a read once.
I liked the voice it was written in--a grown-up voice for kids.
Oh, Tum Tum... you are so sweeeeeet!
