Dog lovers who are brand new to chapter books will love this silly story about Stan the Dog and his adventures with his family and his neighborhood dog rival, Beastly. Stan gets himself into too many scrapes, so 'Can Opener' (the name Stan uses to refer to the mom of the family, who opens his cans of dog food for him) decides it's time to give him a makeover. Will grooming and obedience training turn Stan into the dog his family wants him to be? Cartoons throughout the text make this a quick, fun read.

Sixth-grader Stanford Wong is really looking forward to summer until he gets the awful news that he flunked English. To keep his spot on the top Rancho Rosetta Middle School basketball team, he'll need to do summer school and get a passing grade. Because he flunked, his parents decide that he can't go to basketball camp, and his dad is angry that Stanford isn't a straight-A student like his sister. Can things get any worse? How about being tutored by geeky girl genius Millicent Min and his grandma being sent to an old-folks home? As Stanford navigates summer school, basketball, and friendships, he learns how to be true to himself and the real meaning of success. Read the companion books Millicent Min, Girl Genius and So Totally Emily Ebers to see other points-of-view to this story.
