Is Rexie cut out to be Best in Show? Probably not. Does Julia enter him in the Happy Tails Best of Breed Dog Show anyway? She sure does. This companion to How to Behave at a Tea Party offers readers more laugh-out-loud silly fun with sister-brother duo Julia and Charles and their lovably mischievous dog, Rexie.

With subtle themes of losing gracefully and celebrating the things that make each of us winners in our own ways, this book is perfect for preschool and early elementary children, for readers who enjoyed the How to Babysit a Grandpa series, and for anyone who has ever loved a less-than-perfect pet.

Julia and Charles end up hosting a pet show of their own--don't be surprised if young readers are inspired to do the same!

Julia and Charles can't wait to enter Rexie in the Happy Tails Best of Breed Dog Show. To prepare, Julia will show Charles how to give Rexie a bath; Charles will show Julia how to dye a dog blue. Julia will don a proper handler outfit; Rexie will don the smell of skunk.Julia will get them to the show on time; Charles will make sure their entrance is grand and their exit even grander.

Meanwhile, Rexie will teach both of them that while not everyone can be Best in Show, everyone is Best in Something.
