School Library Journal
Gr 2-4-- Boswell (Boodles) Carey has been Eddie Wilson's friend since Eddie the Dog Holder (Morrow, 1966; o.p.) was published. It's easy to see why these two entrepreneurial fellows like each other since they have so much in common, but it's difficult to believe that a circus parade still comes to town, and more difficult to believe that Boodles helps to put out a fire during the clowns' act and is invited backstage as a reward. Never mind: his enthusiasm and ingenuousness ring true. He, his dog Poochie, and Eddie ramble through the adventures of a school year, members of a benign but never boring world of problems resolved and adults who take children seriously and help them feel important. Haywood's last book shows that her ability to create and sustain lively, appealing characters endured to the end. --Carolyn Jenks, formerly at Oyster River Elementary School, Durham, NH
