My Review

Rating: 5 out of 5.

A witty delight! Lou is the local bathroom – fire hydrant – for all the dogs in the neighborhood. He has a feeling that he’s meant for more though. One day when a fire breaks out, Lou discovers what he’s truly destined for. He’s a hero!! A fun and silly story that will have everyone laughing out loud. The illustrations are absolutely stunning and hilarious. The ways the dogs are standing in line had me chuckling! A story all kids will thoroughly enjoy!
