Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Cathy Greenwood
The author of Babe: The Gallant Pig has another barnyard tale for us about a lovable misfit. This time it is pitifully unattractive puppy named Smasher who quickly grows to be a gentle giant of a dog. When Smasher innocently wreaks hilarious havoc in Mrs. Buzzard's farmhouse, Farmer Buzzard takes pity on him and secretly trains him. Smasher manages to redeem himself and save the day for the Buzzards with an act of friendliness mistaken for heroism.

This book was really good. It is about a dog when it is young is a trouble maker. The owners don't know if they are going to keep him. When the dog get bigger he is still not that good of a dog. Then one night a robber tried to brake in and the dog caught him. Then the owners of the dog decided to keep him because he protected them at night.
