Review:

I enjoyed the way this book was told mysteriously. I was drawn in when Fritz (the dog) ran away into the garden where absolutely, positively, NO dogs are allowed, and when Gases said that he changed Fritz into a duck. I thought it was mysterious when the duck acted like Fritz, then flew off with Alan's (that's the boy who dog-sat Fritz) hat, and later Fritz back in his dog- form was found with Alan's hat. It really made me wonder... The illustrations were also very well done.
