SUMMARY OF THE MENTOR TEXT:

Mabel is a spoiled dog who lives with her parents in the Hamptons. She is shocked when her parents call her naughty because she is actually VERY naughty. Mabel is known for making a mess of the house, swallowing jewelry, and knocking over the Christmas tree. When Mabel’s parents make her take a bath, she knows it must mean they’re throwing a party!

To her disappointment, Mabel’s parents put her to bed before the party. However, she can’t stand to miss out because she loves parties. Mabel decides to go down to the party and causes all kinds of problems: spilling food and drinks and knocking guests into the pool. While at the party, Mabel ate too many pigs in a blanket and noticed her stomach start to grumble. She lets out gas so smelly all of the guests leave before the party is over! Mabel thinks her parents will be mad, but she is happy to learn they still love her, even when she is naughty.
