About the Author:

Betsy Sachs is the author of Mountain Bike Madness and The Boy Who Ate Dog Biscuits, which was inspired by her biscuit-eating cousin. She lives in Waterbury, Connecticut.

From School Library Journal:

Grade 2-4-- A disjointed story about the summer days of a soon-to-be-third-grader who wants a dog. Plot development is fragmented and illogical at times. The inconsistent characterization of the parents sends mixed messages about their son, whom they think needs improvement before he is allowed to have a pet. Billy is a likable, regular kid, and one whom other kids would like to know. His parents call him "irresponsible," but all summer they have trusted him to walk blocks, cross at the light, and spend his free time with the local veterinarian, exercising her strays. When Billy's grandfather comes to visit, he see the responsible side of his grandson, and Billy's favorite stray is brought home to him. Young readers may accept the parental incongruities as normal, but the book is unnecessary in most library collections. --Ellen Dibner, East School, Long Beach, NY
