But the well-ordered household is turned on its head whenever Madame Croissant’s granddaughter, Daphne, comes to visit. She’s as wild as Mr. Dash is courtly, and she makes the poor dog’s life miserable. But when she finds herself in real trouble, Mr. Dash proves that he is not only well-mannered but as brave as any knight.
Merci Mister Dash! is not only a hilarious salute to common courtesy, it will appeal to dog lovers and to anyone who is trying to civilize an untamed creature – of any kind.

Mister Dash, a sophisticated, dapper-dressing dog, likes his quiet routine with Madame Croissant. Monday through Saturday, he is the epitome of manners. But on Sundays, Daphne visits. Daphne is Madame Croissant's granddaughter and she is far from quiet. She is unpredictable, messy, spontaneous...Mister Dash has no use for these qualities. So when Daphne finds herself in trouble, will he be able to set aside his perfect manners to help her? Monica Kulling's newest picture book is a not-to-be-missed read-aloud with expressive illustrations by Esperanca Melo.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
