ABOUT THE BOOK
The Rulebreakers’ Club is a gang of five without a dog. And, of course, gangs without dogs are just not cool. So they decide to remedy this situation by stealing a pug named Spike. But dog-owning is not as easy as it sounds. For Spike, who has a cat’s temper and a dinosaur’s appetite, leads them to uncover a terrorist operation.
Along the way, Spike is mistaken for a dead husband, poops incessantly, snores like an autorickshaw and simply will not stop eating!
Can the Rulebreakers survive this troublemaking dog and save the world while they’re at it?
- The writing is funny and lever, with laugh-out-loud chaos, and a fast-paced crackpot plot.
- Zany and madcap characters that still manage to stay true-to-life.
- The children’s attempts to procure a dog are hilarious.
- The new Penguin edition has a much better cover.
- Some obvious plot holes.
- Illustrations not attention-grabbing enough.
It is not the kind of story that will stay with the reader or make them think, but they will enjoy it for its humour and nutty plot.
