A pampered pup takes center stage at her parents' party in this charmingly hilarious picture book from film and Broadway star Nathan Lane (of The Lion King and The Producers fame) and Devlin Elliott!

Meet Mabel, the fanciest French bulldog the Hamptons have ever seen. Mabel is many things: sassy, classy (and sometimes a bit gassy!), but especially...naughty! Mabel's always getting herself into trouble--and with style like hers, can you really blame her? When Naughty Mabel's parents throw a party and try to leave her out of the fun, of course she must take matters into her own perfectly pedicured paws. As the hilarity ensues, Mabel and her parents learn that through thick and thin, naughty or nice, they'll always be a family, just as they are.

Booklist Review: "Naughty Mabel is an engaging newcomer to the ranks of misunderstood free spirits. The tiny, pseudo-sophisticated French bulldog lives with her human parents in the Hamptons, where she enjoys adding excitement and panache to every social occasion. She rampages through their modest mansion, wreaking chaos in her wake, yet her doting humans always forgive her. This forgiving inclination is sorely put to the test when Mabel decides to crash a formal soiree, culminating in an unfortunate eruption of mansion-clearing gas. Thankfully, however, her parents love her no matter how big a mess she makes. Young readers will enjoy Mabel's irreverent antics, particularly as they're rendered in Krall's cartoonish illustrations, especially the spreads revealing the path of Mabel's destruction in a bright-red dotted line. Krall's stylish, colorful drawings add sly bits of humor perhaps a few celebrity cameos? and effectively emphasize Mabel's outsize personality. Mabel is somewhere between Fancy Nancy and Rotten Ralph, and her fashionable destruction is sure to charm little ones.--McBroom, Kathleen Copyright 2015 Booklist"

Publisher's Weekly Review: "Lane and Elliott's first picture book begins with Mabel, a French bulldog with huge batlike ears, floating in a palatial Hamptons swimming pool. It ends with Mabel unleashing a fart so powerful that it sends her owners' guests fleeing in their formalwear. In between, Mabel tosses off bon mots ("I'm five! Oh, I know I don't look it. Besides, five is the new three!") and denies-and then impishly affirms-that she is indeed a bad dog. "Of course, I play by my own rules," she says while wreaking havoc on a miniature golf course. "I'm a maverick, what can I say?" Krall (Sick Simon) gives Mabel a visual personality that's part diva and part Auntie Mame, but it feels like he's pedaling awfully hard to achieve a champagne bubbliness. As for the text, if Lane could come to every home and read this book aloud in his inimitable cadence, readers would be thoroughly charmed. But on its own, it's a rambling monologue without any narrative cohesion beyond an arch attitude. Ages 4-8. Authors' agent: Brenda Bowen, Sanford J. Greenburger Associates.
