I really enjoyed this as a beginning readers chapter book. It was a pretty quick read, so I don't think an emerging reader would have too much trouble reading this on their own. The plot was fast paced and fun, with some great messages for the reader about family troubles, which I thought was helpful. They did a great job showing what it was like to have a family member who isn't the best at their job; in this case, the father. I would really recommend this to a young reader.

This was a wonderful story of a young boy coming to terms with the changing dynamics of his family and this is all compounded with the arrival a little precocious Jack Terrier named Ruckus! A fast moving tale that will keep any young reader engaged until the end!
Highly Recommended!
