Harry was a white dog with black spots and he really hated baths. One day he knew he was going to get a bath so he took the scrubbing brush and buried it. Then he ran away. Harry had a great adventure but ended up turning into a black dog with white spots. When Harry got really tired he went home but his family did not know him. Read the rest of the book to see how Henry told his family who he was.
This book was fun. The pictures show how Harry changed from a white dog with black spots to a black dog with white spots. My favorite part was when Henry jumped in the bath tub with the scrubbing brush so his family would know who he was. I also like the very end when Henry is sleeping on top of his scrubbing brush.
I think anybody who likes dogs should read this book.
