Back cover summary

Mike Mendez is one crazy inventor. First he devised the automatic stamp-licker. Then the incredible shoelace untangler. Now he's come up with the unbelievable Beast-o-matic, which turns people into animals!

But it may have turned Frank and Joe's friend Chet into man's best friend-a dog! Have the boys found a lost mutt...or lost a good buddy? Meatball sandwiches and liver treats will tell the real tale![1]
