Okay, so I know this is a childish book, but I bought it because the cover looked like my dog. The story is just so cute, though. This is one of those rainy-day books where you want some fluff and have an hour to spare. Not too descriptive. Since this is a child's book, I'm not really surprised that the writing isn't so amazing that I just have to read every single book by Tui T. Sutherland. Tui is a very awesome name, by the way. I'm still not sure how to pronounce it.

I can't say this was the best book I've ever read. It was great because I could relate to the puppy problems, but Rosie (main character) had some very high standards for her poor puppy. Like, say, she's disappointed when Buttons (puppy) doesn't like getting forced into pink doll outfits. And she HATES it when Buttons goes digging, which is pure natural puppy behavior. Apart from Rosie being a bit ridiculous at times, it was ok though!

Ten-year-old Rosie is a girlie girl. She likes pink fingernail polish, and sweet, quiet, pretty things. She doesn't get much of the sweet, quiet and pretty things at home, though, because she has four older brothers.

Four. Four older brothers.

Rosie is overwhelmed with noise and dirt. So when she has a chance to vote for what kind of dog her family should get, she has already researched the answer -- she wants a cute, white, fluffy, princessy dog -- a toy poodle. Finally she will be able to have a

The Girl and I read this one together, as we often do. Why am I adding it to *my* list? Frankly, because it was an amazingly good book!

My daughter's nine and loves dogs. I wasn't surprised when she picked this up, but I figured I'd be suffering through another middle grade book that strung together a flimsy plot and cardboard characters. What a nice surprise! This author's voice was incredible. She really nailed the age group, and all the characters (this was a first-person narration) were indiv

I thought that this book was really good. A girl named Rosie finally gets her wish for a dog. She gets to pick her out and name her. For once, her brothers won't have any part of it. She ended up adopting an adorable poodle. But the poodle likes to makes messes and cause havoc. Rosie can't stand her little poodle not being lady like, but her brothers love the new poodle. Will Rosie learn to live with it and love her poodle? Or will the poodle be replaced? Read this book to find out.

I LOVE Pet Trouble books! And, the main character's (a 10 year old girl) name is Rosie, which reminds me of my dog. Very good book, as always!

Okay, I know what you’re thinking. Tui? What kind of name is that? Is it short for something?

Nope. Among the many great things to come out of New Zealand (the Lord of the Rings movies, cats that paint, my mom) is a bird called the tui—not as well known as the kiwi, but a heck of a lot noisier!

I was born July 31 (same birthday as Harry Potter!) in Caracas, Venezuela, and lived in Asuncion, Paraguay
