Great book to read aloud
This is a wonderful book to read aloud, particularly to a 2nd or 3rd grader. Both of my boys loved it immensely, with all of its general silliness both in plot and presentation.

Great naughty factor!
Okay, I had to search for the reviewers who gave this book bad reviews to see what they said. And now I feel deeply sorry for them - where's their inner child!!!!!
As a Children's Librarian, I was looking for a book to read to at-risk & low interest kids (mostly boys) which might excite them to come to the library & read - just read -- anything I can get in their hands -- and this book does it. The naughtiness of getting to say "poo" a hundred times, of imagining the Giggler Treatment for the adults in their lives, the great/funny boxes of information about the differences in our cultures (Irish & American), - and especially Rover's super-deluxe shoe-shaped dog poo sends the kids giggling off their seats every time. By the end they are cheering for the big save and asking if there are any more fun books like that at the library -- and of course there are!!!
If you are going to read this as an adult - first concentrate. Go back to the time in your life where anything gross or the opposite of adult was the funniest & greatest thing around. When justice was black & white and understanding that there is more than one way to view a situtaion was absolutely amazing. Then have fun!!!!! I do recommend getting to read it out loud - it's a hoot.
this book sucks
this book sucks! its a insult to nature. Its horrible writtin and dull. They use the same jokes over and over again that werent even funny in the first place. It fooled me that it was writin by some one older then 4. you couldnt pay me to read this book again. I am in a sixth grade class and we read each others writing. The worst story i read in my class by a 10 year old was better then this one. Everyone in my class hates it(are teacher just finished reading it to use). If you are considering buying this book dont. You will through it out the window after the first 20 pages(i would have if are teacher wasnt reading it to use) discusted by the dumb jokes and how horribly writin it is.

I like the Giggler Treatment. I loved the chapter with the word two in it. I loved the chapter's names and the poo dissaster. He reallly funny auther. I like gigglers because my nick name is "Giggles". He's a funny writter.
Very cute book, a fun read for a little kid. Cute pictures are nice too, I have the hardback version, nice cover.
