You’ll be surprised that the title character of Larry: The King of Rock and Roll by Iris Rainer Dart is not a person at all. Larry is a dog who not only talks but can also sing. Well, he becomes famous and kind of full of himself, and like lots of famous people, he has to make some tough decisions. Is fame and fortune worth losing the love and cuddles he used to get from his human family? Is it worth making all his dog-friends mad at him? What would you do if you were Larry? If you like funny stories about dogs and friends and rock-and-roll, you’ll get a kick out of this one.
