Overview

It's the Emperor's birthday—but he's not happy. Presents spill over the steps of the palace, but he doesn't like any of them. Then Fred, the gardener, finds a missing label and attaches it to a stray puppy—The Last of the Gruckle Hounds. The Emperor is overjoyed (never mind that he doesn't know what a gruckle is!) The Last of the Gruckle Hounds lives a life of luxury, sleeping on silk cushions, feasting on salmon—while his twin brother, Scruff, searches for slops in the city's bins. Will the puppies ever meet again? And, if they do, will Fred's trick be discovered?
