Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Cathi I. White
Sixth grader Ella loves to sing and play the piano. She spends all her time practicing. She is preparing for the school talent show. However, she receives an unexpected gift, a beagle named Trumpet, from an aunt that has passed away. Trumpet is loveable, cuddly and seems innocent enough. That is, until Ella sings or starts to play the piano. Trumpet howls very loudly and will not stop! No matter what she tries he will not quit. As a result, she is unable to practice daily as she has always done. In her frustration, she tries to practice at school but it is not enough time. Furthermore, she is fearful of being the laughingstock of the school if she can't perform the way she wants. She is also afraid of being made fun of by the school bully who has taunted her several times in the past. Then Ella becomes best friends with a girl who loves dogs and has a possible solution to her problem. As a result, Ella and Heidi, along with some other friends, come up with a scheme that will help them to be the stars of the school talent show. Readers will love finding out more about Ella and her wonderful pooch as they are hooked chapter by chapter to see what will happen with a surprise ending in store. This enjoyable book would be a great asset to any classroom library. Part of the "Pet Trouble" series. Reviewer: Cathi I. White
School Library Journal
Gr 3–6—The first title stars Ella, a young musician who typically spends hours practicing and socializes only with distant music-camp friends. When she inherits Trumpet, a beagle that howls along whenever she tries to sing, she soon finds herself crossing paths with dog lovers and making friends. In the second book, easygoing Parker suddenly finds himself the owner of a golden retriever, and the dog's escapades (Merlin has an almost magical ability to escape from any setting and follow him to school) land the boy in trouble. The sixth grader's first-person narrative employs casual language occasionally peppered with poetic descriptions. The story effectively veils the details of Merlin's breakouts in secrecy, presenting Parker and his friends with a mystery worthy of their creativity and cleverness as they work together to contain the enthusiastic pup. Narrated by the two classmates, each tale engenders an empathetic view of a middle-school community by relating events from different perspectives. This easy-to-read set is fair fodder for kids who like model protagonists and pets, preferring predictability and happy endings to emotion and peril.—S.
