If you liked the "Giggler Treatment" you will love this book. This hilarious book is exciting because they talk about crazy things like; birds with machine guns, talking lizards, and walking and talking poo. Yes, I said, POO! I laughed the whole time and so will you.

I thought the book was great. I liked it alot because of the crazy things that went on. Actually, they are beyond crazy they are ridiculously crazy. Who could ever believe a dog could take Rudolph's place and save Christmas.I really like funny things and this book made me laugh as I read it. That made reading the book fun. The illustrations were great. It really made me think of what Rover looked like. You have to read it to believe it. I hope the author writes more books about Rover!

I do recommend that 4th and 5th graders read this book because they will appreciate the humor. Read this book and see what I mean.
