Mary Jane Auch and is an award winning author and illustrator of children's books for younger readers. The story is mainly about a dog called Arful Lewis who suddenly begins talking. The chapters are narrated by Brain Lewis and his dog Arful Lewis. The dog's owner and his friends send Arful to spy on the other students who are planning to participate in the school's talent show. I found the story's plot to be very funny with nice illustrations. One of My favorite chapters was the preparation for the talent show. Brian's friend Dougie came up with the idea of being a ventriloquist using Arful as his partner. I think other young readers will enjoy this book because it makes you laugh knowing that the dog Arful can actual understand and talk with other people. I also recommend this book because of the characters, illustrations and interesting story line for readers between the ages 5 to 8. I give a rating of five stars.
