: Book Reviews > Dog Breath
By Dav Pilkey
Bad breath can be a problem throughout one's life. No one knows
why. This is a case where having bad breath really pays off in the end. Hally is a cute, little dog who has become a part of the Tosis
family. He is good little dog who has a huge problem. Horrible things happen whenever he opens his mouth. The goldfish swims upside down and
the Mona Lisa in the painting on the wall holds her nose. Even the skunks take offense to the horrific smell.
Mr and Mrs Tosis decide to give Hally away to a good home. The
Tosis children want to keep their dog and go through great lengths in
order to do so. They take him to a high mountain for a breathtaking view.
They take him to a movie theater where there is a very exciting movie
which they hope will leave Hally breathless. Instead of turning out they
would like, the actors on the screen must hold their noses because Hally is in the theater. They take him on a speedy roller coaster, but instead
of him losing his breath he breathes on all the other children on the ride making them sick. Sad that not of these things have worked, the
Tosis children begin to cry. They are well aware of the fact that they
wouldn't be able to keep their dog anymore.
Hally Tosis has one last chance that night. Two burglars break
into the Tosis house. The seemingly cute little dog packed a mighty
powerful kiss for the burglars. The two burglars are knocked out cold by
"Dog Breath." The Tosis family receives a reward for catching the crooks. The Tosis family also realizes that Hally Tosis is the top crime-fighting
dog in the country.
This sensational book written by Dav Pilkey has a remarkable
story line and very entertaining illustrations. There is plenty of play-on-words throughout the book. Man's best friend is taken to another
level with protecting its master.
"Dog Breath" will be sure to take your breath away and have you
