Deep Doo-Dooby Michael C. Delaney, Michael Delaney
When electronics whiz Bennet and his best friend, Pete, discover a way to interrupt local television broadcasts, they set out to spoof their governor's reelection campaign, using a Dracula-masked Labrador as spokesdog. When the broadcasts capture national attention, everyone -- even the FBI! -- wants to know who's behind the mystery dog known as Deep Doo-doo. How long can Bennet and Pete stay on the air before they're in over their heads? "Very believable and very funny. This should satisfy aspiring inventors and children who enjoy a good laugh at the expense of adults."-- Booklist

Bennett and Pete accidentally break into a TV broadcast with their antenna invention. They then use it to preempt the Governor's campaign speech. Using Pete's dog Gus, disguised in a Dracula mask to deliver their complaints about the Governor's policies, they create instant havoc in the town. Bennett's dad is a reporter for the local newspaper and becomes the one person who receives written warnings of upcoming Deep Doo Doo broadcasts. Deep Doo Doo becomes national news and is covered on the front page of even the New York Times! Bennett stutters his way delightfully through this story, getting the name Deep Doo Doo from his knowledge of the Watergate Scandal and the informer Deep Throat. Read the rest, I won't spoil the ending. I thought it was hilarious. I laughed out loud when I was alone!
I think this book is good. Ya. GOOD. Now go out and buy this bread book.
