9780142403853: Sherman Crunchley

Sherman Crunchley is Biscuit City’s nicest police officer, but that’s just the problem. He’s too nice! Sherman comes from a long line of police chiefs, but it’s hard to be a great police officer when you’re the kind of guy who can’t say no. Can Sherman find the courage to tell his father he doesn’t want to be the next chief of police? Beautifully illustrated and filled with canine capers, this silly story barks out a serious message—being true to oneself.

From School Library Journal:

PreSchool-Grade 3-Sherman Crunchley, a police officer in Biscuit City, has a family tradition to follow. He is to become chief of police when his father retires next month. The problem is, though, that this dog doesn't want the position but doesn't want to disappoint his dad. The only thing he likes about the job now is wearing the hat. The truth of the matter is that hats are the love of his life. He is pictured throughout the book wearing a variety of different and outlandish headgear ranging from the simple police hat to a doghouse hat. He tries a variety of methods to communicate this fact to his father, including checking out How to Say No from the library and ordering a video tape entitled Must Say No. He even tries seeing a hypnotist. Finally, he gets an idea. He fashions special hats for all of the guests at his dad's retirement party and assigns them to their seats, whereupon the letters on their hats spell out, "I don't want to be chief." To Sherman's surprise, his father is delighted; he didn't want to retire. The illustrations are done in bright, bold colors, and the pup's hats add an amusing touch. Children will enjoy this funny tale, and they might even learn a lesson about life in the process.
