This was a cute, short, enjoyable little novel. Less swaering and it'd be perfect for children!

I loved this short story in Beckham (the dog's) POV. He tells us what it's like for the family dog at Christmas and how he's ignored while his family rips open the presents and waits for dinner, that they tear into. His thoughts had me chuckling all the way through and I didn't want it to end. I sure hope there are more stories about Beckham. I highly recommend this quick holiday read.

I thoroughly enjoyed this book. Told from the dog's point of view. Very witty and well written. If you have ever owned a dog, you can relate to this one. There are a few words within the book that may be inappropriate for young children.

I did not find this funny. It was a cutesy story without much to it. It was quick to read so not much was lost but I did expect a little more from it. At the very least I wanted a nice dog story.

This book was OK for a quick read but the end left me disappointed. Built up as tho it was going to be a good ending.
