It’s amazing, but Perdita has tons and tons of stories about her family.
At least that’s what she says, but Laura thinks there is a pretty good chance that Perdita is making all of it up as she tells it.
But the stories are so unusual–did you know that dogs have stories about their cousins and uncles and grandmothers, and crazy fathers? Well, Laura didn’t know that, of course, and she wouldn’t have believed it until she heard it right in her own brain, from Perdita’s amazing though-particles.
Here are some of the characters you’ll meet in Perdita’s first two books. And . . . we’re absolutely sure you’ve never met any dogs like these!
First, of course, is Perdita’s father Par Whack. Laura thinks Par is a scoundrel because he creates so much confusion (and steals so much food!), but Perdita thinks he’s a famous dog hero.
Par has battles with the police, with the evil dogcatcher Elrod P. Sondgrass, and especially with the principle of the school, Mr. Wimpy.
Here are the names of a few of Perdita’s stories from her first two books. We think they’re pretty amazing, and we’ll bet you’ll agree.
Her stories include:
Uncle Bookie and the Book of Doom
Par Whack and the Thanksgiving Pageant of Doom
Stop and Smell the Fire Hydrants
Einstein Noodle Sees the Light
Uncle Rip van Noodle Finds The Big Chill
A Jolly Game of Cow Panic
