Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
“A satisfying read.” —Booklist
Children's Literature - Ellen Welty
Addie May would like nothing more than to have her very own Chihuahua but her dad is allergic to dog hair. When a local family sponsors a Chihuahua race, Addie May cannot wait to go. The day of the trial race she realizes that one of the fastest dogs in the race is owned by Teddy Krebs, the meanest boy in her class at school. Addie May is surprised at how affectionate Teddy is to his dog. Teddy's dog Phantom wins the trial race and is scheduled to race in the final against the dog owned by the sponsor's son, a boy on whom Addie May has a secret crush. Before the final race scheduled for the weekend, however, Teddy asks for Addie May's help because Phantom is missing. Despite how she feels about Teddy, Addie May cannot resist the plea she sees in Phantom's eyes when she looks at the posters Teddy made to try to find his dog. Since Addie May's mom is an investigative reporter for the newspaper, Addie May knows a thing or two about solving a mystery. How the two children work together to solve the mystery of Phantom's disappearance while learning how to get along with each other makes a great story, one that will appeal to middle school readers. Reviewer: Ellen Welty
School Library Journal
Gr 3–4—Teddy's dog, one of the fastest Chihuahuas in Salt Lake City, has disappeared before the first annual Chihuahua Race. Fourth-graders Addie May and Teddy have had their differences in the past, but they are willing to work together to find Phantom. While they disagree on what happened to the animal and who should be on the suspect list, they question everyone with a motive and involve Addie May's mom and the police when they suspect dognapping. The black-and-white illustrations, some full page, draw attention to some pivotal scenes. The Chihuahua Chase won't make readers laugh like Darrel Odgers and Sally Odgers's "Jack Russell: Dog Detective" books (Kane/Miller) do, but beginning chapter-book readers who are looking for an uncomplicated mystery/dog/friendship story may find this book to their liking.—Tanya Boudreau, Cold Lake Public Library, AB, Canada
Kirkus Reviews
Fourth grader Addie May and her frenemy Teddy find more than they bargained for in the run-up to the big Chihuahua race downtown. Sometimes Teddy is as mean as a snake and then, out of the blue, Addie May sees a sweet side. Teddy turns to Addie May when his beloved Phantom disappears after his move to her neighborhood, and the two kind-of friends put their heads together to solve the mystery. An animal-rights activist becomes the children's prime suspect, which leads the children into a scary encounter with her and her house of "rescued animals." Laced into the story of the sudden absence of Teddy's pet are the burgeoning and confusing emotions that Addie May feels for both Teddy and older, hunky Zack. In the end, Phantom is found, and Addie May learns a little bit about the ways boys show affection in the fourth grade. The third-person voice is familiar-almost too much so, as it can become distracting and does a lot of telling instead of showing. Not the leader of the pack. (Fiction. 7-11)
