Waiting for minimum critic reviews


Ed is the Hubbles’ friendly mutt. Princess is Mr. Pitt’s perfect poodle. Both are show dogs. Well, not really, but don’t tell the Hubbles that! Ed can do everything that Princess can do. Roll over, sit up and beg, jump through hoops. Well, almost. At least Ed tries! Soon the big day arrives. Who will go home with the big prize? Shhhh, it’s a surprise....

Meghan McCarthy’s bright, primary colors and lively text capture the inherent silliness of a dog show, revealing that, no matter what, the best dog is a fun dog.
