Overview

Sweetie is a smart poodle pup, with a knack for learning tricks. Can Charles find an owner that will make use of her talents?

Charles loves Sweetie at first sight. For such a small pup, she has a whole lot of charisma and she's amazing at learning tricks. But Buddy is jealous every time the new miniature poodle gets near the family. Can Charles find a home for this cuddly sweetheart without upsetting his own puppy?

"Every puppy is different. The fun part about writing The Puppy Place is putting those distinct personalities front and center and really treating the dogs as primary characters. I love getting to know each puppy the Petersons foster, and I hope you do, too." -- Ellen Miles, author

Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Peg Glisson
The Peterson's have another foster puppy, Sweetie, in this latest entry in "The Puppy Place" series, where the people remain mostly the same while each book features yet another puppy. For young Charles, it was love at first sight and he is primarily responsible for the family agreeing to temporarily adopt the pup. It turns out Sweetie is quite intelligent and very quick to pick up tricks that Charles and his friends, David and Sammy, teach him. The three friends spend many afternoons in David's basement, playing circus and coming up with new tricks. They hope these tricks will lead to Sweetie's adoption, but that's not all that happens as a result. Miles works in lots of information about being a puppy foster home, therapy dogs, and the effort involved in having more than one dog in the home. She also manages to include dealing with some friendship issues common in threesomes and in facing and overcoming fears, and what to do in an emergency. It's all pretty innocuous and will be gobbled up by young dog lovers and early readers who love the idea of reading chapter books. The writing is fairly wooden and the book itself is unattractive—just pages of text with no illustrations to break things up, surprising in a book aimed at six- and seven-year-olds. Readers of this age like to read books in series; let's hope they are quickly ready to move from this bland book to better written books for their age. Reviewer: Peg Glisson
