Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Pretzel finds that being the longest dachshund in all the world is not enough to win the favor of Greta, the little dachshund from across the street.

Synopsis:

One morning in May five little dachshunds are born. They grow up the way puppies do, and at first they all look exactly alike. But after nine weeks Pretzel starts growing - and growing - and growing! Fully grown, Pretzel is the longest dachshund in all the world. He easily wins a blue ribbon at the dog show and is admired by everyone - everyone but Greta, the little dachshund across the street, who doesn't care for long dogs. Pretzel is unable to win Greta's heart until the day she needs rescuing, when the only dog who can save her must be very, very long. This classic story of puppy love will win the hearts of both old and new Pretzel fans. How can you go wrong with a story that begins and ends with puppies?

Synopsis:

The longest dachshund in the world, Pretzel is admired by all and the winner of a blue ribbon at the dog show. Only Greta, the little dachshund across the street, doesn't care for long dogs. At least not until she gets into a jam out of which only a long dog can help her. This classic story of puppy love will win the hearts of both old and new Pretzel fans.

About the Author

Hans Augusto Rey was born in Hamburg, Germany in 1898. As a child, he spent much of his free time in that city's famous Hagenbeck Zoo drawing animals. After serving in the army during World War I, he married Margret Rey and they moved to Montmartre for four years. The manuscript for the first Curious George books was one of the few items the Reys carried with them on their bicycles when they escaped from Paris in 1940. Eventually, they made their way to the United States, and Curious George was published in 1941. Curious George has been published in numerous languages. And many, many Curious George books have followed.
