The start of a spin-off chapter book series in the world of the Flytrap Files, from New York Times bestselling author Tom Angleberger—now in paperback!
You’d think from his name that DJ Funkyfoot was a rad hip-hop star, but that’s just the name his parents gave him. DJ Funkyfoot is actually a dog who’s always dreamed of being a butler! He’s the butler-iest butler to have ever buttled, but finding a butler gig is hard these days! So DJ Funkyfoot takes on a job that’s ALMOST like being a butler . . . He becomes a nanny for a baby—and not just any baby: SHRUBBABY, an adorable baby shrub. ShrubBaby may seem cute and cuddly, but she’s got a taste for chaos, thrills, fertilizer, and fame! While a nanny might say “no” to this baby’s whims, a good butler says “yes.” So DJ Funkyfoot says “yes” to every single thing ShrubBaby wants to do. When adventure calls, ShrubBaby says, “Let's go!” and DJ Funkyfoot says, “Very good, m’lady, I’ll fetch your stroller.”
The books will take place in the same world as Inspector Flytrap and Didi Dodo but do not require knowledge of the world.
"Readers will come to admire the dapper dog’s (mostly) unflappable ability to carry on—or, at least, make a hasty exit."Booklist —
