The Boy Who Ate Dog Biscuits by Betsy Sachs, Margot Apple

Billy Getten really wants a dog. He’s so dog crazy that he eats dog biscuits! But Billy’s parents won’t give in. They say he’s too irresponsible. Then Billy meets the dog of his dreams. Can Billy convince his parents that he’s ready for a pet before the most wonderful dog in the world gets adopted by someone else?

“This short chapter book offers good role models; strong, three-generational family relationships; and a smooth message about friendship. The soft, expressive black-line drawings will help draw readers.”—Booklist

Every night, at bedtime, my son and I read for 15 minutes. If my son really enjoys the story, he will ask me to read just one more chapter; he did not ask me with this story. We thought the book would be fun to read because of the title, but it turned out to have a serious tone. I think it had too much happening for a short story. It touched on lying, forgiveness, commitment, responsiblity, having a baby as a sibling, health issues with aging grandparents, and wanting a dog. When we read a story, we like to feel what the character is feeling. There was just too much going on for us to actually get involved with the character's feelings.
