It's hard to be a good dog, but Harold, the golden retriever, really tries. Then the Dad brings home Prince, a silly little puppy that the Dad says is smart and brave.

Prince! “Smart and brave!” Harold can hardly believe his ears! And, even worse, when Prince does a doggy-doo right in the house, the Dad blames Harold!

Harold thinks Prince is a poopy little puppy. How is he going to live with him in his house?

Kids with baby brothers and sisters will sympathize with Harold.

This book is laugh-out-loud funny for kids and parents. Perfect for early readers and the Common Core. Adults are allowed to laugh along as well.

This book is for early readers and young readers, ages 6-8 or grades 1 to 3 who like:
  • Funny books about dogs
  • Roald Dahl or Shel Silverstein
  • Juvenile fiction
  • Humorous stories
Fans of the Down Girl and Sit Series by Lucy Nolan, The Trouble with Chickens by Doreen Cronin, or Ice Cream Soup by Anne Ingalls will love this book.

Harold and the Poopy Little Puppy is a cute book that will read easily with children in elementary school. It's not your typical children's book as far as illustrations. You'll find that it has a couple pictures spread out through the chapters, but mostly words. So possibly the younger kids, might not be captured right away. I think for student's that are more advance in their reading, this is a good book to practice with.

The story itself was cute, with a some humor. Harold is the main dog that has lived with his owners for some time, and cue the new puppy into the family. That would be Prince. Harold is just not pleased at all that Prince is part of their lives. When Harold barks, his barks are describe as sentences in the books. So as if he was having a conversation with his owners and Prince. Now Prince, doesn't have this feature when he barks.

The story centers around Harold learning to live with Prince, while he keeps getting in trouble for things Prince has done. Of course Harold tries to explain this in hi sparks, so his owners know he didn't mean to make them get upset. But they lack the understand of his barks. Then towards the end of the story, Prince and Harold have a wonderful moment and everything finally begins to click with them two.

The book is a quick fast read and perfect for all dog lovers.
