Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
Mud, the Blossoms' rambunctious dog who ``had never turned down a walk in his life,'' takes center stage in Byars's event-filled fifth installment about this irrepressible clan. Ages 8-12. (Mar.)
Children's Literature - Marilyn Courtot
The Blossom family is always involved in some crazy adventure, and the fourth in this series is no different. Junior can't find the class hamster. It looks like Mud the dog is the culprit, but Vern and George are acting mighty strange. The only thing to do is to put Mud on trial for the crime. Subplots abound with neighbor Mad Mary missing, Vicki Blossom's new boy friend, and Ralphie's romance with Maggie Blossom running hot and cold. Edgar Allan Poe Award winner and an ALA Notable Book for Children.
Children's Literature - Mary Quattlebaum
Middle-grade readers wait with great anticipation for a new book in Byars' series about the Blossoms, which chronicles the adventures (and misadventures!) of a loving, quirky family. In the fifth and latest book, the family dog is accused of devouring the hamster, Scooty, and must stand trial before a jury of his peers (the kids and other dogs). Mud's rescue from a certain 'guilty' verdict and the surprise ending will delight readers.
