9780141312507: Notso Hotso

It's a dog's life for Anthony. Not only is he lacking the respect he deserves from the neighbourhood dogs and cats, but suddenly all he can do is scratch, scratch, scratch. And now bits of him are dropping off - yeuch! Just when Anthony thinks things can't get any worse, he finds himself on the vet's table. What she has in mind is about to destroy the tiny shred of street cred he has left...

About the Author:

Tony Ross was born in Wandsworth, but moved during the war to Cheshire. He ended up at the Liverpool Regional College of Art after despairing of working with his first love - horses. He went into teaching after a bad day in an advertising agency, where he was art director, and at first taught in all sorts of areas - design, advertising, typography. At that time he was drawing cartoons in magazines like Punch. He has written and illustrated many popular books for children including Foxy Fables, I'm Coming to Get You and Naughty Nigel, all published in Puffin. He lives in Cheshire with his wife and daughter.

From Booklist:

Gr. 2-4. The author of Alias Madam Doubtfire (1988) and other popular stories writes with the same delicious wickedness for a younger audience in these two illustrated chapter books, originally published in Britain. Pets are the narrators here, and they speak with venom and spirit about their owners. In Diary, Tuffy the cat is in trouble for killing a bird ("So hang me. I killed the bird. For pity's sake, I'm a cat"), but did Tuffy also get the rabbit next door? Mystery is woven into the sly pet story, and Cox's black-and-white artwork shows the hissing, spitting cat standing up to a furious dad and a "sniveling" kid. The hero of Notso Hotso is a mangy dog, Anthony, who is treated with disgust when he gets a bad itch ("in places my bum was raw"). After his owners have him shaved, the once gruesome, yucky mongrel feels suddenly powerful and confident--because he looks like a scary lion. Ross' line drawings, full of action and expression, effectively capture the transformation. Both books will be great for reading aloud and reading alone. Hazel Rochman
