Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Carol Lynch
It is a relief to find that this is the story of a tricky dog rather than the intestinal affliction of the same name. Montezuma is the classic good dog who always does what he is told but is under-appreciated. When his family goes on another vacation without him, Montezuma decides to have some fun of his own. A trip to the park turns into an encounter with a much more worldly dog (Wild Bill) whose only desire is to visit a house. Montezuma's family returns to find their home turned upside down by Wild Bill. As a result, they have a new appreciation for Montezuma and promise to always take him on their family trips. The most unusual addition to this predictable story is the use of bold print to set Montezuma's speech apart from the rest of the text.
Library Journal
Gr 1-3-Montezuma is left at home when his owners go on vacation. He is a good dog who always sits and stays when told to. He reflects on how awful his dog-sitter is and how much he'll miss his family. He goes out through the "doggie door," runs off to the park, meets a scruffy stray named "Wild Bill," and hatches a plan. When his family returns, Montezuma is missing and Wild Bill shows them just what a disobedient dog can do; he splashes in the toilet, swings on the drapes, puts on lipstick, and skateboards through the house. Needless to say, when Monty reappears, he is showered with affection and is taken along on the next trip. The humor is labored, the oil-pastel drawings pedestrian. This dog story is better off left behind.-Judith Gloyer, Milwaukee Public Library Copyright 1999 Cahners Business Information.
