The plot: A cool, curious and wild coyote finds himself in the house of a retired film star dog in Hollywood.
They're from different worlds but both have a lot to learn from each other.
It's a rollercoaster ride of adventure, kidnap, glamour and fast talking.
The characters: Ice cool Antwan the Coyote, Buddy the film star German Shepherd and Miss Betty the pampered poodle.
Highlights: It'd give the plot away... but the best bits are the witty and cool banter between the characters.
Any weak bits? When the mum figures out the dogs can understand what humans are saying. It doesn't add to the book and feels a bit stupid.
Unputdownable? This book has it all, supercool characters, Hollywood glamour and an action-packed plot. It'll have you gripped to the end!
