Goodreads:  Discovering that sometimes you have to be a little bad to be very good, Tako the puppy makes a brave choice in this adventure tale and proves that heroes come in all shapes and sizes. When 8-year-old Ricky Lee finds a puppy on the side of the road, he takes him home and names him Tako. Ricky’s mom and dad agree to let Tako stay under one condition: he must be a good dog who always follows the rules—or it’s off to the pound he goes. Tako wants more than anything to be a good dog and stay with Ricky, but when the Lees open Happy Family Bakery and a competing store owner sets out to sabotage the shop, Tako has to break the rules to protect Ricky and his family.

Ope’s Opinion:  This was such a pleasure to read to my granddaughter.  It kept me interested and the  illustrations were very original.  I would be willing to read this over and over again to her.                  good dogEmma’s Opinion:  She was very happy that Tako found a home.  She wants me to come read to her again real soon.  hand

This is Emma’s five finger seal of approval for The Good Dog.
