About the Author

Bill Wallace grew up in Oklahoma. Along with riding their horses, he and his friends enjoyed campouts and fishing trips. Toasting marshmallows, telling ghost stories to scare one another, and catching fish was always fun.
One of the most memorable trips took place on the far side of Lake Lawtonka, at the base of Mt. Scott. He and his best friend, Gary, spent the day shooting shad with bow and arrows, cutting bank poles, and getting ready to go when their dads got home from work.
Although there was no "monster" in Lake Lawtonka, one night there was a "sneak attack" by a rather large catfish tail. Checking the bank poles was not nearly as fun or "free" after that point, but it was the inspiration for this story.
Bill Wallace has won nineteen children's state awards and been awarded the Arrell Gibson Lifetime Achievement Award for Children's Literature from the Oklahoma Center for the Book.

Deffinatly a great book for younger children, with quite a few laughs, and pretty fast when going. It's about this dog who runs out into the forest. He encounters this goose, and it frightens him. Before all this, he encounters many other things.When reading this, I feel like I'm right beside the puppy the whole time. Exciting, adventure, and a quick paced book, children will certinally love this book.

The majority of the children in our 3rd grade book club enjoyed the book. The story appeals to both boys and girls. Story is appropriate for young readers.

This book captivated my 10 year old son. The material was very clean and appropriate. We read it together and he related to it very well.

An amazing book about an annoying puppy from a dog's point of view.

I enjoyed the book from beginning to end. The story kept me thinking what would come next for the puppy. I would tell my friends to read this book.

Well, this book wasn't a throwaway, but it was rather pointless. It is a well written book, but most likely made for young children. The book gets boring after a while, and if you're prepared for a thrilling climax, think again. The most exiting part is when a goose attacks the pup, which I think is rather stupid. Three out of five.
