Contest winner! PET TROUBLE readers voted online to choose the dog for this book, and the overwhelming winner was the adorable dachshund!

Readers voted online to choose the next PET TROUBLE dog -- and the dachshund was the runaway winner! But he's still a little bit of trouble ...

Charlie can't wait to have a dog of his own, and King is just what he wished for: playful and very loyal. So loyal, in fact, that he doesn't like anyone else -- Charlie's brothers, the family's other pets, other people ... Can Charlie find a way to make King part of the group? Or is this dachshund an un-trainable tyrant?

Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Mary Hynes-Berry
Scholastic clearly feels that there is a market for stories about kids' favorite pets including different breeds of dogs. They are just as clearly trying to tap into the "issue" book market for pre-adolescents. Dachshund Disaster is a good example of the limitations of producing books to fit a formula. While it is not a disaster, this story is contrived and overloaded. Charlie, the first person narrator, comes with a full bag of issues: he is the middle son of a single parent family created by the death of his father and the much younger brother was adopted. Mom is struggling to support them all and cope. The possibly gay au paire Giovanni has to keep all the brothers' balls in the air. Enter King the dachshund, Charlie's tenth birthday present—who likes Charlie but barks at everyone else, including the brothers' pets. Of course, all works out in the end, thanks to a sniff of preadolescent boy-girl negotiations and advice featuring different cultural origins. Even the sibling rivalry between Charlie and his older brother subsides. This book is not terrible: the narrator's voice is strong. However, its overloading of the issues does give a good example of how "Less is More." Part of the "Pet Trouble" series. Reviewer: Mary Hynes-Berry
