Reviews
Goodreads

I really like this book and this author. She genuinely understands what matters to young children, and writes with warmth, humor, and more suspense than you might expect in a Christmas story. As an adult reader, by the time I was one third through the book, I couldn't put it down.

Can fifth grader James cope with being constantly overshadowed by the popular boy down the street? Can first grader Mandy make real her wish to do things all by herself without messing up in front of everyone? And can Rosco the German Shepherd prove to one and all that he's not a stupid, clumsy oaf, and save the neighborhood from the brink of Christmas disaster (which he partly caused)? These are all real human (and canine?) feelings which anyone can relate to. My favorite parts are those told from the dog's point of view--both heart-warming and very funny at the same time.

A clever addition to the e-book version is the clickable links to define some of the "hard" words and phrases (such as "cringe" and "steal the show"), which are great for building confidence in early readers.

If you want stories to stir the hearts of the young people in your life, the Rosco the Rascal series is a lovable choice. This book, though seasonal, is my favorite so far. ~Larry Feign
