Overview

First someone eats a steak right off the barbecue. Then someone digs up Mom's flower bed. Spike knows it's not his fault, but Shannon still has to take him to obedience school. While nervous at first, Spike discovers he loves school. He's good at all the lessons, he makes a new friend, and he even gets a blue ribbon. But as soon as he gets home, the trouble starts again. Will Spike be able to find the real culprit-before he gets blamed for more trouble?

Family Life called Spike "a goofy-looking dog you've just got to love," and in Spike in Trouble, Spike's misadventures are as funny and endearing as ever.

Spike enjoys attending obedience school after someone causes a lot of mischief at home, but upon his return he exposes the real culprit.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
Accused of rummaging through the trash and digging up the flower bed, Spike is sent to obedience school in Spike in Trouble by Paulette Bogan, the fourth title starring the spunky canine. But Spike is innocent, and when he returns from training to find more mayhem afoot, he's determined to catch the real mischief-maker. Copyright 2003 Reed Business Information.
Children's Literature
"Someone" is causing trouble all around his house and Spike, the doggy hero of Spike in the City and Spike in the Kennel is confused because everyone is blaming him for the mischief. Shannon takes him off to obedience school, where he not only makes a new friend, but also wins a blue ribbon. But on his return home, he finds the laundry scattered and Mom's newspaper missing. Spike is determined to find the real culprit. When he finds that it is his new doggy friend, he scolds her but then feels bad. He is cheered, however, when not only does Shannon apologize, but also his friend returns with the newspaper. The colored drawings in cartoon style emphasize the emotion-generating facial expressions of the characters in mostly detail-free scenes. Spike on the jacket/cover, furtively spying through the tall grass, sets us up for the comedy inside. The progression from front end-papers to final scene and back end-papers seems to lead us on to Spike's further adventures to come. 2003, G.P. Putnam's Sons/ Penguin Putnam Books for Young Readers,
— Ken Marantz and Sylvia Marantz
School Library Journal
PreS-Gr 2-Another enjoyable installment in a series of books about a lovable pet. When Spike's family discovers a steak missing from the barbecue, Dad's favorite boots chewed up, overturned trash cans, and a dug-up flowerbed, the dog is blamed and sent off to obedience school in disgrace. However, after he graduates with honors, the annoyances begin again, and Spike comes up with a plan to uncover the truth. Patiently, he hides and watches, and eventually finds out the identity of the troublemaker. Playful cartoon illustrations in bold colors capture the personality of the maligned but spunky canine. Children who search the pictures carefully will find clues to the culprit's identity.-Sally R. Dow, Ossining Public Library, NY Copyright 2003 Reed Business Information.

    So much fun

    Spike is always a hoot. The kids are very amused by his antics. Great drawings.

    Spike the real deal!

    I always marvel at the perspective of Spike's adventures. In dazzling color he moves through the path of 'everydog' making doglovers laugh a thousand laughs. Such expression in the faces!

    Spike in Trouble

    Paulette Bogan has done it again. Spike in Trouble is absolutely, yummy for your tummy, delicious!! There are wonderful paintings as you turn each page and I loved the story. I was the youngest of three children, so I can relate to Spike, being blamed for everything. As a professional babysitter of 10 years, I highly recommend Spike in Trouble. Your kids will love it and so will you. I can't wait to see what Spike will do next!

    Welcome back Spike

    Spike in Trouble is yet another wonderful book in the 'Spike' series by Paulette Bogan. My nephew was thrilled to find out what new things Spike has been up to. Spike is his favorite character (and one of mine too). We are both looking forward to finding out about his next adventure (and soon we hope).

    Spike in Trouble

    My dog Spikey is just like Spike in the book! She gets blamed for things she doesn't do! I love this book and the illustrations are great.
