Buddy's an aging movie star. Antwan's a rough-and-tumble loner. And Miss Betty, the show girl, is a princess. Different in nearly every way, they share one thing: they're all dogs ... at heart.
Antwan's too curious a coyote to turn down Buddy's invitation to see how the other half lives. Convincing his new human family he's a mysterious pooch named Timmy, Antwan quickly becomes part of the brood. But as Antwan's star rises, Buddy's spirits fall. To cheer up their pal, Antwan and Miss Betty concoct a daring plan, setting off a chain of uproarious adventures that will teach them all a few new tricks about friendship, family, and life.
A Coyote's in the House reveals the inner life of canines -- wild and domesticated -- in a fresh, funny tale for the young and the young at heart.
Performed by Neil Patrick Harris

Elmore Leonard has written more than forty books during his highly successful writing career, and many of his novels have been made into movies. Leonard is the recipient of the Lifetime Achievement Award from PEN USA and the Grand Master Award from the Mystery Writers of America. He lives in Bloomfield Village, Michigan.From AudioFile:
Leonard once again satirizes the film industry. When Antwan, a cool coyote, enters the home of Miss Betty, a snooty show dog, and Buddy, a depressed movie star dog whose career is on the wane, Buddy and Antwan conspire to pass the coyote off as a dog to their clueless human family. But can Antwan be trusted? Neil Patrick Harris delivers an edgy narration in which tension is balanced with humor. Harris is the actor's equivalent of a one-man band, becoming each character from the inside out. This is great entertainment for those not bothered by stereotypical characterizations or the cat-eating habits of coyotes.
