    I'm always sorry to finish a book, to let go of characters I love, people I've struggled to understand for years, people who evolve before me.... Continue »

"Hally Tosis was a very good dog, but she had a big problem."

Hold your nose! Because here comes the dog with the worst breath in the world!

"Wordplay...is at the heart of this sweet, funny picture book...And the bright colors…add a marvelous effervescence to the zany goings-on."--Booklist

Review:

"It could be said that Pilkey (Kat Kong; the Dragon books) never let a good story go unPUNished. From its open-mouthed mutt to its put-upon family to its climactic burglary scene, this latest entry might have been modeled on Susan Meddaugh's Martha Speaks. But Pilkey's silly tales forage unabashedly for lowbrow laughs, and his aim is usually accurate, even if adults more than kids will catch these halitosis jokes. Here, 'a dog named Hally, who lived with the Tosis family,' emits green puffs of breath so toxic they knock Grandma Tosis out of her chair. When the Tosis parents put their putrid pet up for adoption, the Tosis kids try to save Hally: they bring her to a site with a 'breathtaking view'; to a movie (starring 'Perry O'Donnel and Ginger Vitus') said to leave audiences 'breathless'; and to a roller coaster so fast it makes riders lose their breath — to no avail. Yet a glimpse of a headline on a newspaper (called The Daily Foreshadow) and a wanted poster showing two robbers presage a happy ending: the villains visit the Tosis home and suffer the odiferous consequences. Pilkey's punchy art, characterized by heavy black outlines and bold colors, matches the clowning quality of the text ('the watercolors, pencils, magic markers, and Dijon mustard'). Guaranteed to ward off smellancholy. Ages 4-8. (June)" Publishers Weekly (Copyright 1994 Reed Business Information, Inc.)

Synopsis:

A lively puppy is on the loose, sniffing his way through town and causing mischief! But what is the pup sniffing? Readers will follow the clues, from bacon and pancakes at breakfast to garbage cans and fire hydrants in the park, to guess where the dog is running to next. Will he finally find what he is looking for?

Author and illustrator Ryan Sias uses bright, dynamic illustrations and minimal text to create a delightfully funny story that will have young readers guessing until the very end.

Synopsis:

Hally Tosis is a very good dog, but she has a very big problem--bad breath. This classic title introduces the importance of good dental hygiene to young children. Full color.
