@kidlitexchange #partner Thanks to the @kidlitexchange network for the review copy of this book - all opinions are my own.
Have you ever considered the complications of being a very, very, very long dog? Yeah, me neither, but the problems do exist and Bartelby sure can tell you about them. Bartelby has a very happy life. He lives in a beautiful old bookstore, he gets to eat breakfast while reading his favorite books, and he has great friends that take him on his morning walk. What else could a dog ask for? The problem is is that Bartelby is so long his front doesn't know what his bottom is doing. He has no idea the catastrophes that he causes on his morning walks. One day when his daily walk causes more than the normal chaos, Bartelby tries to attack the problem... and then he realizes it's his own bottom. He is so sad that he goes home and vows to never leave the bookstore. Will his friends be able to convince him to ever go back outside? You have to read this cute, funny, and must read book to find out!!
