In this quirkily subversive picture book, a young girl finds friendship--and an unexpected sense of belonging--when a group of playful "bad" dogs moves in next door.
It's midnight when the dogs roll into town, rumbling and clanking and waking up the little girl next door. Suddenly, she has new neighbors, and they're nothing like the family who lived there before. They steal her bacon and turn up their noses at her peanut butter cupcakes. Yet they also take her along on trips to the river, where they all sing and laze in the sunshine.
But when the girl discovers a wanted poster plastered with the faces of her canine neighbors, she can't help but wonder: Are these bad dogs, after all? A hilarious, surprising, ultimately kid-friendly tale (tail?) about taking the good with the bad.
