Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Kindergarten-Grade 2–Two pups, lovable and well-behaved Victor and "cool and bad" Butch, are taking a cruise with their owners. Victor is excited about everything but Butch is most impressed with the Captain's dog, "Lord Laa-Di-Dah," and is determined to emulate him in every way. The vacationing dogs' friendship becomes strained when Butch receives an invitation signed "Yours snootily," to join the Captain's table for dinner, but Victor does not, and he learns that being hoity-toity, or "ahoyty-toyty," is not all it's cracked up to be. While youngest listeners might not understand the tongue-in-cheek wordplay, the vibrantly colorful larger-than-life illustrations and expressive language effortlessly convey the meaning. A silly story about snobbery and recognizing one's true friends.–Wanda Meyers-Hines, Ridgecrest Elementary School, Huntsville, AL

I have two Westies and loved this little story. Very cleverly written and quite funny. I highly recommend it for children and Westie owners alike.
