This could've been about my sister's dog when he was a pup. He has a tail that's always knocking things over. Tucker seems to be more rambunctious/unlucky than that, but all ends well anyway. Maybe a little like the dog version of Cookie's Week? But dogs are faster than cats, so this story takes place in less than an hour!
This book is for people who have animals that just don't know their own size. Tucker is a mess and most people would scold him for it. However, this family loves him and would never scold him no matter what he does. One good thing is that Tucker is not making a mess on purpose he just isn't careful.
This is my favourite children's book! The memories that come with this book are irreplaceable. Ever since my dad read this book to me as a little kid I have always wanted to have a dog like Tucker. It would make me laugh out loud and I would beg my dad to read this book to me again!
