Summary

Grab your sunglasses and slather on the sunscreen! In this laugh-out-loud adventure for kids and animal lovers everywhere, summer is here and Junior is getting his very own doggy vacation.

It's me, Junior, back again with another tail-wagging tale of mischief-making! I'll tell you all about the fur-raising time I had when my pet humans went on a trip without me, and the horrible place they left me. Here are some of the adventures I had:
How I survived on a diet of icky vegetables , with no yummy, drool-inducing meat in sight! My super-secret plan to steal delicious hamburgers ! How my pooch pals and I cooked up a grand scheme to break free and get back home.
It's a dangerous mission, but as I always say, you can't keep a good dog down!

Kirkus Review

That large, unruly dog Junior is back for a third funny outing, this time getting left behind at a posh but sadly vegetarian dog kennel when his family goes on vacation.Just as soon as Junior overhears the plans for a family vacation in Hollywood, he begins to make his own preparations, vividly imagining a place where all the "streets are paved with sausage meat" and where, of course, he'll quickly be discovered as a superstar. He and his doggy friends are crushed to later find that their families' vacation plans don't include them. Initially, Barking Meadows, with its spa treatments and cushion-filled kennel, seems to offer a fine alternativeuntil the dogs discover that the vegetarian food is, well, made of vegetables! What dog wants to eat celery and broccoli frittata? Desperate for a proper meal, a determined Junior takes it upon himself to lead the escape attempts. As usual, this exuberant canine has plenty of harebrained schemes, bringing just enough intelligence to bear to create laugh-out-loud situations. This action-driven book offers little character development, but it hardly matters since it's all about the silliness, including a pinch of bathroom humor, just right for the audience. Large, clear print and plentiful illustrations make this a fine choice for transitioning readers with funny bones to tickle. Watson depicts Junior's family as white, but some secondary human characters are people of color.Another doggie delight. (Fantasy. 6-9) Copyright Kirkus Reviews, used with permission.
