Per my first graders:She was cute because she had a bow in her hair. It was cool because there was lots of dogs in it. It was a good mystery because we didn't know who was going to adopt Princess.

My 7 yr old discovered these books and loves them. Between her birthday coming up and Christmas and doing her best to show good behavior in school and being rewarded with a new book at the end of each month (severe ADHD has caused some struggles during her first 2 years in school and we've discovered that the reward of a book after a great month is what works to help her behavior), she is going to fly through this series.

I think this book was cool because it had a family that took care of dogs until they could find an owner for them.

not real happy with this book. the series as a whole tends to talk down to kids in that the puppies have weird voices. in this book the kids identify the problem, that princess is spoiled, and that fixing this will take a lot of work, but none of the strategies is mentioned.

This book series is about a family that fosters puppies until they get a forever and perfect family.

In this book it all starts when Charles and his older sister, Lizzie, go to see their hair - cutter, Danielle and when another hair - cutter comes in with a puppy, that is when the story begins.

The hair - cutter says she will be working with Henry (on-ree ), professional hair colorist, and will not come back, and that she won't take her dog with her, the dog's name wa

I had a great time reading this hillarios fiction because its a fantastic fun read.Mostly my favorite part of the book is that Princess the dog was acting like a little sasy diva.This book is about a little Yorkie that was settled to a foster family because her owner had to go to L.A. to work with a famous fashionista.When Charles meets Princes he knew it was going to be a hard job to foster a spoiled sasy dog.When Charles went to reading ...more

Recommends it for: young readers
Cute book for young dog lovers. It was a very appropriate read-aloud for my kindergartner. We'll check out more of this author's puppy chapter books.

Emily 5 1/2: I liked Princess making demands on Charles. Princess liked the grooming shop because she liked the good smells. I recommend all children to read this book!
