One morning in May five little dachshunds are born. But one grows up to be the longest of all! Pretzel easily wins a blue ribbon at the dog show and the admiration of everyone—everyone except Greta, the little dachshund across the street, who doesn't care for long dogs. But Pretzel is able to use his unique gift to win Greta over, and before long they have puppies of their very own. This story that begins and ends with puppies is perfect for dog lovers, fans of Margret and H. A. Rey’s picture books, and anyone who is a little bit different and special in their own way.
Pretzel, Greta, and their adorable puppies return in the sequel, Pretzel and the Puppies.
