My Homework Ate My Dog! by Derek Taylor Kent is a young adult fantasy book that would appeal most to a mixed audience of pre-teen and teens who enjoy magical fantasy fiction. Eleven-year-old Rudy Berkman and his dog, Beast, barely survived a fire that burned everything the Berkman family owned to the ground and resulted in Rudy being enrolled in Danville Reformatory School. It is in Danville that Rudy’s life is forever changed when his homework comes to life and eats his dog. Are you ready to follow Rudy, Brett, and crazy Grandpa Stu as they set out to rescue Beast?
My Homework Ate My Dog! by Derek Taylor Kent is a well-written book with a cover image that immediately pulled me in with a desire to find out what was going on with the vicious-looking homework. This book reminded me a bit of Harry Potter and Goosebumps, yet I found myself liking it more than those series as it was not as predictable as they were. I have to say that even as an adult I found this book to be an amusing read. If I had read it as a middle schooler it probably would have been one of my favorite books as it was filled with mystery, fantasy, and a bit of horror. My favorite part of the book was when Grandpa Stu let Rudy in on the truth of the War of the Ankaras after Rudy and Brett rescued him with the help of the ice cream man. Overall, I found this book to be a great read that held my attention so tightly that I finished it in one go.
