Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Sue Poduska
Part of the "Pet Trouble" series, this is a fun look at a family and a puppy adjusting to each other. Ten-year-old Rosie Sanchez competes with her four older brothers for the right to pick the breed of their new dog. After she wins, she chooses a toy poodle. After attempting to dress the puppy in doll clothes and paint her nails pink, Rosie learns to treat the dog as a dog rather than an extension of her girly self. This is good since one of the dog's favorite activities is rolling in mud. Her brothers and all their friends learn to love the dog, too. And Rosie learns that her brothers really do love her. The reader learns about several breeds of dog through a clever selection process. Touches of economics (involving a bake sale) and fashion (Mom's job is at a boutique) are also thrown in. The author does an excellent job of describing the puppy's behavior and appearance. Reviewer: Sue Poduska

This book was so cute . I love the main character, Rosie. I always liked kitties more than dogs but this book was still really good. The author does a good job describing how Rosie's 4 older brothers act and treat Rosie and Buttons (the puppy). In the end all 4 of Rosie's brothers want to hang out with her and Buttons, which Rosie thought would never happen. this book is great you have to read it!

All the Pet Trouble books are great. I love watching my son read them and smile when he reads a funny part. Since we love dogs, we love reading these books. My son has been reading them for his reading tests and they are a quick read (and enjoyable) for me to prepare him for the tests.
