Summer 2009 Kids' List

“When Ella's beagle howls whenever the musically talented girl sings, she has to learn to cope with the challenge with the help of new friends. This is a great dog/girl story in a series that also includes Pet Trouble: Runaway Retriever (Scholastic Paperbacks, $5.99 paper, 9780545102414 / 0545102413). Both books are wonderful summer reads.”

Ten-year-old Ella lives for music, and with the school talent show coming up, she doesn't have time for anything else. So when her aunt's beagle comes to live at her house, Ella doesn't think she has time for a dog -- especially when it turns out that every time the beagle hears music, she wants to sing along! And her voice is definitely NOT angelic. How is Ella supposed to win the talent show when all she can hear every time she rehearses is AAOOOWWAAAOOOOOO?
