A must for the school library, this side-splittingly witty tale of embarrassment has a rather neglected dog, Anthony, as a central character. His owner is horrified when Anthony's skin problem gets to the point where bits of it threaten to spoil the furnishings in her pristine home. Anthony is horrified about what his friends down the park will think and also what the vet is going to do to him. Written in the first person by Anthony himself, the acute embarrassment is articulated superbly as Anthony is shaved from his tail up to his neck, giving him the appearance of a miniature lion. Following his initial shock, Anthony uses his new look to conjure up some fun. Revenge is sweet! Ross's ink and wash illustrations capture the agonies that Anthony goes through masterfully.
