    Scholastic knows their marketing in that kids (and many big kids) love a good story about animals. The dog and cat are cute, (that’s why I picked it off the shelf) and there’s a similar cute image on the back. The problem I have is that the obvious ploy to sell this book slightly misrepresents what the book is about. The Diary of a Dog is a touching and often hilarious account of his, and his lurcher companion’s adventures and the book will resonate with all people who have ever been owned by a dog. The Diary of a Dog book by Bandit, transcribed by Robert Powell is exquisitely illustrated by Viv Levy and would make a wonderful gift; but is an absolute.
