It Came From Beneath the Bed! is about a little dachshund puppy who is trying to write a good book. He writes about things underneath Pete Monroe's bed. He explores under the bed with his friend Delilah, and he finds a teddy bear. What do you think happens next?

I like this book because it is funny and every writer can kind of relate to Howie because he has some trouble writing. My favorite character is Delilah because she isn't very smart, but she's funny. I like the way Howie describes her in his book as a beautiful, yet dumb puppy. I can relate to Howie because he tries to be brave.

I recommend this book to people that like dogs and funny books because Howie is just a funny little dog. I think everyone should read it.
