With the font size so big, I expected this to be on a 1st or 2nd grade level, but it's got some big words and a lot of attitude that would only be caught by a fluent reader. The story is narrated by a prissy (he wants you to call him "fastidious") dog with mange (which is GROSS). He's sarcastic and cheeky, which is the most enjoyable part of this book. It's probably best for 3rd and 4th graders who would otherwise be reading Captain Underpants or The Day My Butt Went Psycho. The illustrations reminded me of Quentin Blake, who does most of Roald Dahl's books.… (mais)

Por fin ha llegado la Navidad, tiempo de cantar villancicos y degustar manjares. Pero Tuffy, para variar, está encerrado en el garaje, castigado. ¿Qué habrá pasado esta vez? Él jura y perjura que no ha sido culpa suya: todo empezó cuando los gemelos Lancelot y Lucila llegaron de visita, dispuestos a revolucionarlo todo…¡Estas prometen ser unas Navidades dulces, blancas y moviditas!

Tuffy está de celebración: ¡es su cumpleaños! Pero su familia, tan desagradecida como siempre, no parece dispuesta a organizarle la gran fiesta que merece. Tendrá que encargarse él de todo, y demostrarles que se basta y se sobra para pasarlo en grande… Será una fiesta terroríficamente divertida.
