Pretty good.I like books about funny animals. I like REAL funny animals. Meatball sure is a funny bulldog. This book was obviously funny, and also,I like all of the characters. A dog also got rescued in this book, and I like it when animals find a forever home and get rescued.

Disclaimer: My pet is a beautiful slobbering bulldog, with wrinkles and one big brown spot.

This book is amazing. I see this series get checked out a lot at the library, but I did not know much about it. A great middle grade read! Of course, all of the parts about Meatball, the lovable and loyal but unconventional dog are funny because he's so ridiculous. He snores a lot and slobbers.

In this book Eric finds a dog abandoned in front of his mom's veterinary clinic. The bulldogs name was Meatball. Eric convinced his mom to let him try keep Meatball. Meatball if very stubborn though. And he gets Eric into trouble, and there is only one way to get Meatball to play around. I learned that it doesn't mattre what kind of dog you get, as long as it likes you. Auryn 12 years old, 2016

I thought that this book was pretty good. It was a short read. It's about a boy named Eric who has always wanted a dog. His wish comes true when he finds a bulldog tied to the door of his mom's vet clinic. He takes the dog home and calls him his. But, Eric starts to have second thoughts about keeping the bulldog. Will Eric keep him, or will he drop him in the pound? Read this book to find out.

Okay, I know what you’re thinking. Tui? What kind of name is that? Is it short for something?

Nope. Among the many great things to come out of New Zealand (the Lord of the Rings movies, cats that paint, my mom) is a bird called the tui—not as well known as the kiwi, but a heck of a lot noisier!

I was born July 31 (same birthday as Harry Potter!) in Caracas, Venezuela, and lived in Asuncion, Paraguay
