I bought this book at my 8-year-old granddaughter's school book fair. She and I both like dogs, and the puppy on the cover caught my attention. When she spent the night at my house I read the little chapter book to her. I thought it started a little slow and I wasn't sure about the attitude of the main character. But as the plot developed with added characters, challenges, and dialogue, there was a lot to enjoy and even some "take-away" value. My granddaughter enjoyed the story and could relate ...more
Muttley was a great book. It shows that even a tired dog could become a hero. When Muttley saved their lives Lizzie realized that anyone would be lucky to have him.
I Thought it was cute. Mutley was a hero and saved the day.

Muttley is a life saver dog!!! He saved the Peterson family, (Only himself, Lizzie, Dad, Charles, and The Bean, Mom wasn`t home), and it`s wonderful! And then everyone has a ceremony to say 'Your a great pup Muttley!' He doesn`t want to get up, he`s a lazy puppy. But Lizzie thinks she`s always a know-a-lot. When Daphene and Brianna come to see the place, their walking down the cat aisle, and says, 'This is the cat room.' So is she a real know-it-all? Or is she a know-a-lot??

This book is good but it's not great. It was a lower reading level so the book was very predictable. This book is perfect for 1st grade or 2nd and is really good for people who love animals.
This book has some slow coming to the point it's a great book if you love upcoming climax
This book tells a really good story about heroes!Dogs like Muttley!
