Here Comes Trouble!

Here Comes Trouble!
By Corinne Demas, illustrated by Noah Z. Jones
New York : Scholastic Press, 2013, ages 6-8

This book is about a dog named Toby that doesn't like any type of cat. Toby's neighbors went out of town and their pet cat had to stay with Toby's family. Toby always got in trouble when Pandora (the cat) did something. At the end, Toby actually helped Pandora when she was stuck in a tree.

The writing style was predictable and composed in short sentences that had fairly easy vocabulary. The style was repetitive and easy to understand.

The illustrations went very well with the storyline. They conveyed the character's emotions extremely well. It was interesting how their were different sizes and shapes throughout the book.

Personally, I don't care for the book. I thought it was easy to relate to, but it was boring and the ending was aniclimactic. I would not recommend this book to other children.
