Strudel, a homeless dachshund, loves listening to Jake read from Chief, Dog of the Old West at the animal shelter. When Jake decides to adopt him, Strudel vows to be as brave and loyal as Chief. Only trying to fend off danger in his new home leads to trouble when Strudel makes mistakes such as shredding a "rattlesnake" that is actually a garden hose. But despite Strudel's humorous miscalculations, his instincts are mostly correct. He knows who is really a member of his pack, and that Mom's boyfriend Arne can't be trusted. In a surprising climax Strudel finds his former master, exposes Arne and is reunited with an old friend. Middle-grade readers can get a dog's eye view as an irrepressible dachshund narrates this touching story of a dog who needed a family, and a struggling family who needed a dog.
Martha Freeman has written fiction for children of all ages. The Horn Book praised her rich details and well-drawn characters in her most recent novel The Orphan and the Mouse, declaring it "a satisfying package of happy homecomings, evil exposed, and the virtues of loyalty, bravery, and literacy rewarded." She lives in Philadelphia.
