Gr 3-5-Anthony is a dog with a nasty skin condition and a distinctly British voice. When his itchy, flaky flesh gets too disgusting for his family to abide, they take him to the vet and have his fur shaved off, leaving only his head and the tip of his tail intact. This latest happening in a lifetime of perceived indignities leaves Anthony devastated and ashamed until he learns how to use his new look to his advantage. He has a dry, sarcastic sense of humor and an uncharacteristic lack of loyalty for his owners, particularly the lady of the house, whom he witheringly refers to as "Her Ladyship," "Mrs. Neglectful," "the Kitchen Queen," and more. With large print, appealing black-and-white illustrations, and plenty of low-grade gross-out fun, this easy chapter book is ideal for reluctant readers. A sound supplemental purchase.-Catherine Threadgill, Charleston County Public Library, SC Copyright 2006 Reed Business Information.
