Ellie tries, really tries, to be good as she faces temptation over and over again. But how can a wiener dog resist? There are sandwiches and trash baskets and freshly baked ham sending heavenly smells straight to her wriggly nose. Ellie so wants to please because she loves to hear “What a good dog!” but she is also taunted by naughtiness because she thinks with her nose. She smells and sniffs and it’s hard for her to be good when she gets a whiff! Children, and adults alike, will find Ellie’s tale hilariously relatable. What will she do when put to the ultimate test? Ellie’s irresistible charm radiates from every colorful, energetic page as she struggles in her desire to do the right thing. Her expressions tell the story, making Ellie the Wienerdog a pup readers will come to know and love. With playful text and equally boisterous art, this book invites readers to join in the fun over and over again.
I received a PDF copy of this book to facilitate a review.
I have 2 little boys that just love to push the boundaries of being good every day. This is an adorable story about Ellie the weinerdog trying really hard to be good and do the right thing. The art is colorful and engaging, and the story is short enough to keep their interest over and over. They love reading about the temptation Ellie faces and seeing how she does with it. This teaches a valuable lesson in a short and fun way!
