THE DOG WHO WANTED MORE (A RULEBREAKERS’ CLUB ADVENTURE)

THE DOG WHO WANTED MORE (A RULEBREAKERS’ CLUB ADVENTURE)

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?

SNAPSHOT REVIEW

  • 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.

CONCLUSION

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.

“For a teacher or librarian faced with dozens of books to read, a good book review website is as essential as maps are for geographers.”

“Indian children’s books rarely get the kind of publicity they deserve in the popular or social media. Websites like Goodbooks plug the gap by not letting a single Indian children’s book of merit slip through the cracks. Most people would not even know about the books available in the market if not for a resource like this.”
