Miles the dog would do anything for his family. He cooks. He does laundry. He runs safety drills. But when they all head to the beach for summer vacation, Miles's good deeds backfire. Suddenly, everything he does causes trouble.
"That dog should be in a kennel," an angry neighbor says. Could that be true?
With charm and humor--and unexpected heroism--Miles turns an ordinary family vacation into a beachwide celebration.

About the Author:

JOAN COTTLE graduated from Boston University with a master's degree in fine art. She has illustrated several books for young children, including How Many Ants? and Emily's Shoes, which she also wrote. Ms. Cottle lives with her family in northern California.

From School Library Journal:

PreS-Gr 2-Miles is a truly amazing dog. When he and his family head for a vacation house at the beach, he reviews water safety rules and digs a moat for a sand castle. Before long, however, his helpfulness gets him into trouble with the other vacationers. He accidentally breaks an umbrella trying to set it up in a strong wind, eats another family's picnic lunch (testing it for the four food groups), and turns two children green by applying an entire tube of sunblock. Although he tries to be on his best behavior, helping Mom with the cooking and doing the laundry ("Darks in cold, whites in hot"), he still makes mistakes and feels awful when told that he should be in a kennel. While moping on a beach towel, Miles spies someone in trouble in the water and his quick-thinking and life-saving skills redeem him in the eyes of the vacationers. Cottle's humorous story is whimsically illustrated with watercolors, colored pencil, and ink. While this story is rendered in a similarly playful manner, it is not as humorous as Susan Meddaugh's "Martha" books (Houghton), Michael Rosen's Rover (Doubleday, 1999), and Peggy Rathmann's Officer Buckle and Gloria (Putnam, 1995). Still, Miles will make an appealing addition to most collections.
