Product description

From Booklist

Ages 4^-7. Oscar the dachshund is a dog with a problem: it's hard to win doggy respect when your mother calls you "my little Vienna Sausage." Mom's idea of a Halloween costume is a bun with mustard, but Oscar makes the most of the outfit, defeating a monstrous pair of masquerading cats to get his nickname changed from Wiener Dog to Hero Sandwich. Pilkey's wacky humor comes out in both story and pictures--a recalcitrant pupil at school writes on the chalkboard, "I will not sniff my neighbor." Set against a series of vivid, clearly painted skies, the pictures promise a world in which menace is only artificial and underdogs can become wonderdogs. Mary Harris Veeder


"Raising this story above cliche and bringing its poignancy is Oscar's goodness, which shines almost perpetually." - Kirkus - pointer review

"This may be the funniest Halloween story ever written, and it's definitely got the most lovable hero." - SLJ - starred review

"...canine pun-o-rama." - PW - starred review
