I did not like this book very much. It was about a dog that was very spoiled and was not nice to his owner. He would use this owners car and toothbrush and would even wear his clothes. In the end, the owner gives the dog away to a girl who needed a friend and the little girl loved pampering the dog.
This is the story of a dog who just wanted to be like a person. It drives his owner crazy, until his owner decides to give Jake, the dog, to his neighbor. From that day on, everyone is happy...or almost happy. This is a silly book good for upper ECE or lower elementary level readers.
