My Thoughts:  Dingle is a dog who wants to help people like his dog friend Rex.  How he is going do so is up to him.

There were a few things I didn’t understand with this book.  In the beginning the art is in comic book form, characters with word bubbles and below the images the same words again. I don’t understand for what reason this is done especially since it is only done halfway through out the book.

The book also felt like it needed more story.  You get to the last page and you already know the end because of the bi line. I feel like we get to the climax and then end the story.

If I were rating by the art it would be a 4 out of 5 but since it is the story I am rating, I am disappointed.
