I can't believe "The Wet Dog" is part of our public school reading lessons. It is 90% negativity, packed in 9 pages.
Page one: "Sad Sam"
Page five; "Dad is mad!"
Page six: "Dad is mad. Matt is mad."
0/10 stars, ultimately pathetic.
Now I know why my daughter came home and started talking about throwing out all her toys. Thanks.
