It's a cute story! Some take a negative message away from the story, but it's just a story and it's in the eye of the beholder.

The book I chose to write a book review for is Dog Breath. The author and illustrator is Dav Pilkey. I chose this book because it is so funny. I like it. I think dog breath means stinky. In this wonderful book, the characters are a dog, adults, kids, and burglars. In the beginning, there was a good family who had a dog with bad breath. In the middle, the dog opened his mouth and licked stink on the burglars. In the end, the dog became a hero! The big idea in this story is always brush your teeth! A great quote from the author is, "The Tosis family got a big reward for turning in the crooks." I like this because the dog became a hero. The best part was when the dog opened his mouth and stink came out. The other part was when the skunks plugged their nose. I would recommend this book to someone to who likes to laugh!

I LOVE this book! I am a baby sitter and I read it to all my families forever and now I am reading at as a secret reader at their school. They love it every time. One family even liked me to read it to them every night I came.

I sure I am rating this along the lines of being favortism, only because it hits so close to home. My sisters dog could be the true Hally Tosis!!! My daughter is 4, to young to be able to relate this story to our family situation, but interested enough to make it her favorite for the week!

Hola: En las sinopsis que se pone usualmente para este cuento,falta algo muy importante que es el nudo principal del cuento(y que no es solo el aliento): el perro estaba en una familia y un dia decidieron que por su aliento no lo querian mas y se tenia que ir.Ya habiendose tomado esta decision,de expulsar al perro de su familia ,aparecen unos ladrones y ese mismo perro que ya no lo querian mas,espanta con su aliento a los ladrones. Despues ,como el perro les fue util y por conveniencia,lo reintegran a la familia solo porque les convino.Pesima conducta para mostrar a un chico. Lo bueno es que la famila(aunque por motivos utilitarismo) acepta convivir con el perro(porque no intento buscar un medio para convivir antes?,tambien el aliento feo del perro se lo puede tratar) ,y lo resuelven poniendose cada uno un broche en sus narices.hecho que esta bien de todos modos. El final dividido en 2 partes es: lo bueno:se adaptan para poder convivir. Lo malo:solo se adaptan porque les conviene.Que bonito para un chico ,no?. Solo porque hecho a unos ladron aunque Hally sea "el mismo perro de siempre"(o es otro?). Porque ahora lo quieren en su familia y antes no?. Horrible muestra para los chicos:adaptarse solo por conveniencia y sino ,la expulsion.Y el amor en donde esta ? Solo hacerlo si el perro te es util ?(para mejor,si te es util la persona?). Del mismo modo que en los dibujos animados ,se muestran animales que hablan y actuan como seres humanos(los adultos sabemos que en realidad no es asi),se les da a los chicos esa figuracion con animales pues captan mejor (se supone)los contenidos.El perro en este cuento es un perro ,pero podemos inferir que tambien se muestra como actuan las personas y si no hay supervision de un adulto en este cuento,el punto que me incomododa a mi ,queda sin aclarar y es el nudo del cuento,en mi humilde opinion.No me gustaria tranferir esta conducta a u chico.Pues en el cuento,no esta criticado el hecho que el mismo perro antes ya no servia o no lo querian mas,y ahora que les sirvio (a pesar del mal olor)era aceptado de retorno a su hogar.Ese es el punto de vista que tengo muy presente. El libro tiene muy bonitos graficos,la edicion es muy linda la narracion o estilo tambien pero,lo importante es lo que dice y no el envoltorio,su popularidad .Y no olvidemos que es un libro destinado para los chicos,que por supuesto los grandes tambien podemos consumir con la gran diferencia que el adulto tiene una chance de reflexionar acerca del contenido pero un chico sin supervision ,aun no.Toma y acepta lo escrito como es. En mi opinion:libro nocivo para los jovenes,pues contiene mensajes relativos a intoreleracia,discriminacion y utilitarismo. Sos El Primero Que Me Lo Dice = SosElPrimeroQueMeLoDice

This was a gift to a very happy young man of age 9. He and his friends were so happy to read this book that day he received it. It was so funny with a good moral at the end of the story. Walter the farting dog also was very memorable to read for all children and adult, too.
