Dash is a dog that loves his human family and has the perfect life any dog could want until the Super Sweeper 5000 shows up. Dash thinks Sweeper is another dog and is not happy to be sharing his family. It also seems Sweeper gets to run all over the house sucking up leftover food scraps and even gets his own room. Will Dash understand Sweeper isn’t a dog?

Overall thoughts:
I read this story with my two little girls. My youngest (under 2 years old) didn’t really understand the story, but she did love the illustrations by Valerie Bouthyette. She loved the loveable Dash and seeing him express his disappointment in not being able to do what Sweeper was allowed to do like getting up on beds and eating the scraps from under the dining room table.

My soon to be 6 year old, on the other hand, kept laughing at Dash and how he thought the Super Sweeper 5000 was a dog. She also related to how a dog might think Sweeper was a threat. She kept saying, “Taz does that and he looks like that too when you vacuum the house, mom.”

This is a fun story young children will love to read; even if they don’t have a dog. Dash is cute and very friendly in the illustrations. His facial expressions remind me of Snoopy. The words are easy enough for earlier readers to read along aloud with their parents, too.
