Plot: 1 out of 5

Dogs with everyday people (and cat) problems write to Mr. Mutt for advice.

What can I say about this book? It was very… err… boring. :( The plot would have been interesting if there was a little bit more to it. I like the idea using dogs to write to another dog for the advice, but my attention was drawn more to the cat, The Queen. The parts with the cat and where she cuts in are pretty much the only parts I like. Other than that, I was mostly kind of bored reading the advice letters. Advice columns might be good for newspapers, but not for children’s books.

Anyways, the illustrations didn’t draw my attention like the other books by this illustrator. The only good part was that it was all right reading/seeing the text because it was easy to see/read.

Overall, I didn’t find the book enjoyable or funny. So, basically, read this book at your own risk.
