A sweet story, richly illustrated, about a spirited, rascally dog and his family's unconditional love.

Magnus the Naughty Dog is a fast-paced tale about a dog who loves his family but sometimes has trouble controlling his rascally behavior. Magnus loves food . . . and one day eats up the family's picnic fixings! Magnus struggles, knowing he's in trouble, while his family struggles too, with their frustration. Then they remember the importance of forgiveness, and Magnus tries hard not to do it again . . . until the next time!
