SUMMARY OF THE MENTOR TEXT:

Hally Tosis is a dog who has very smelly breath. Everyone walks on the other side of the street when Hally is outside, and even skunks avoid her. The real trouble starts for Hally when she jumps up on Grandma Tosis, and Grandma passes out from the stink.

Mr. and Mrs. Tosis decide that they need to find a new home for Hally. The children try to get rid of Hally’s bad breath in many different ways, but nothing works.

Things change for Hally when her breath helps capture burglars when they try to break into her house. Hally becomes a hero and her family decides to keep her despite her stink. Students will laugh along with this story about a loveable dog with bad breath.
