Synopses & Reviews
From Dav Pilkey, creator of Captain Underpants, a funny tale of a little dog with a big bullying problem.
Oscar is short, like all dachshunds, and all the other dogs make fun of him. On Halloween he takes more ridicule than ever in his hot-dog costume, but one brave act makes him a Grade-A hero -- proving that a little wiener can be a real winner!
