What's Vinny Gets a Job About

Publisher Summary

The Secret Life of Pets meets Amelia Bedelia in this witty and sweet debut picture book about an overly-literal pup trying his paw at several different jobs and the hilarious mishaps that ensue.

When Vinny the dog decides he should get a job to contribute to his family, he knows exactly what to do. He puts on his best suit and his sharpest hat, picks up his briefcase, and hits the pavement. Vinny isn’t completely sure what a job is, but with his can-do attitude, he’s sure he can figure it out.

But it’s a dog-eat-dog world, and Vinny’s silly misunderstandings when following instructions keep him from staying in one job for long. The irrepressible canine doesn’t give up as he doggedly moves from a restaurant to a florist to a museum filled with humongous (and delicious-looking) dinosaur bones! Can this dog learn new tricks, or will Vinny finally have to call it quits?
