    " *MINOR SPOIER* Fun, fast read. Loved the illustrations. Story often a little too melodramatic--Sam the dachshund has his leg chopped off, participates in dogfighting, and spends 3 years as an animal test subject!--but these things are iced over to make everything kid-appropriate and the happy ending does satisfy. "

    " I've always been a fan of Berkeley Breathed and I am glad he is writing books. The illustrations in this book were typical of his work. I especially loved how he managed to get Bill The Cat in the book. (How he did it I won't say, but it was pretty funny). This is a great dog story and I look forward to the next one. It really is a love story, and yes underdogs do win. I am not sure how the people who attend the Westminster Dog Show will take this book. They may be offended or maybe not. I know some people who take the dog shows pretty darn serious. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kim | 1/29/2014

    " It was a cute read....not my style but I do like dogs and can really see the message and the humor in this. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Erica Handley | 1/24/2014

    " Adventure story with dogs. Themes: Revenge, Forgiveness, Perfection, Jealousy, Adversity. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Heather Cato | 1/18/2014

    " What a cute little book. I loved the story of determination and love for your owner at all costs. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Peggy Hanson | 1/16/2014

    " I liked the book. The story let the reader see that "flawed dogs" need love too. As do "flawed people." "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Anna Robertson | 1/15/2014

    " I liked this book, it was cute and funny. Some scenes are sad though, which may upset kids. Overall, this book is on my favorites list. I would recommend it to a child that understands some forms of animal abuse (dog fighting..) and how dogs can sometimes compete for the bond of an owner. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Leslie C | 1/2/2014

    " I loved this book! Tragedy, mad cap adventure, grace and beauty. Read this book if you have experienced the endless capacity of a dogs love, you have known a wiener dog or you have any sense of humor. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jennifer | 12/24/2013

    " A fun bedtime read with the kids, with a loveable hero and enough gas-related humor to keep them in stitches! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jess | 12/22/2013

    " super cute YA novel about a bunch of throwaway mutts who stage a rebellion in the name of love. did i say super cute? i meant SUPER cute. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Rachel Checchia | 12/17/2013

    " I assumed this book would be lame because of the cover, but I absolutely loved it!! Couldn't put it down; my heart ached and I cried a little. Good story of love and redemption. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Ragan | 12/16/2013

    " A cute story of a wronged dog told from the dogs perspective, mostly. The dancing is so funny. I know you aren't supposed to judge a book by its cover, but it is really, really funny. If I saw this book in the store I would just buy it for the cover art. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Julia | 12/13/2013

    " I didn't like this book because I don't like sad stories/scary. I won't tell you what happens though. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Sheila | 12/9/2013

    " Funny! Dogs who cannot find a home decide to take their anger out on the Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show in the hope they can find a good home and love. Loved the pictures. Loved the story. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Echown | 11/24/2013

    " I didn't think it was the best book in the world but it was ok "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Vegasreaderdjd | 11/9/2013

    " This book had me laughing, crying, swearing I will not read another page, and then loving the ending! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Alyona | 9/12/2013

    " Well, the book is said to be for 4-8 year olds, however, it is a little graphic! I think that all kids still should read it as it really makes you realize the absurdness of liking pure bred dogs over the mutts. It is just a really sweet book that totally made me cry! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Jena Tokarz | 7/30/2013

    " The cover is so cute - I had to read it. It was a bit of a downer though - although it had an "up" ending. I'd say 8-11 age group. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Elisabeth Rae | 5/24/2013

    " Very sweet and sad and cute. I love it and the pictures really add a special character to it. Poor, sweet, weird, and wonderful dogs. I recommend it to anyone and everyone, young or old. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Loren | 4/16/2013

    " All dachshund lovers (like me!) will love this book. And if you're a poodle fan, don't read it, you won't like them anymore. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Laeroport | 1/22/2013

    " A story with so many twists and turns, and even a small reference to Bill the Cat. My 8 year old son and I loved reading this together. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jeffnancy | 12/15/2012

    " I really enjoyed this one! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Devon | 12/3/2012

    " Was a great, and very sad book almost made me cry! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kate | 11/18/2012

    " An emotional tale of a misfit dog and the human who loves him. Extra special for dog-lovers like me. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Molly | 2/8/2012

    " This is a lovely story. Probably for older young adults. When it is sad, it is so VERY sad. But, when it is happy, it is VERY, VERY funny/happy. Loved it. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Debra Gastelum | 9/27/2011

    " I LOVED this book! However, it was so sad. I always enjoy stories with a moral or theme and this one certainly has one. Even if you don't like dogs, you'll still love Sam the Lion. He's one awesome dachshund! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Shea | 6/16/2011

    " so far i think it is a really good book!!!! "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Lynette | 6/15/2011

    " I heard a good amount of it while my mom and sister were listening to it in the car.
    I really didn't like it. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 LaDawn | 6/14/2011

    " Really didn't like this one, but gave it two stars for the happy ending and maybe the moral.
    Otherwise, it was a bit too dark, for the age group it's written for. I listened to it with my 7 year old and found myself cringing at some parts. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Leslie | 6/6/2011

    " I loved this book! Tragedy, mad cap adventure, grace and beauty. Read this book if you have experienced the endless capacity of a dogs love, you have known a wiener dog or you have any sense of humor. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Heather | 6/4/2011

    " What a cute little book. I loved the story of determination and love for your owner at all costs. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Lisa | 6/3/2011

    " Because I loved "Flawed Dogs" so much I saw this last week at our school book fair so I HAD to have it! It was very silly and very fun! A great book for reluctant readers... "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kiara | 5/18/2011

    " Good.A little confusing at times but it was a good story. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Wanda | 5/3/2011

    " I was so sad and shocked by the first chapter, I had to jump to the end to reassure myself to get through the happy parts of the dog's life without crying. It was very good and had a good lesson that some can appear not flawed physically but terribly flawed inside and vice versa. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Sarah | 4/20/2011

    " The story of Sam, a dog, whose life has been one long tragedy after another, but who, in the end, takes control of events. A children's novel, but dark and violent. I won't recommend it to any of my animal loving friends. "
