PreSchool-Grade 2ASchnitzel von Krumm's family is packing for a camping trip and the little dachshund is definitely in the way. Once on the road, the parents realize they've forgotten one very important thingASchnitzel von Krumm. A neighbor reunites the neglected pooch with his owners. What could have been a delightful story falls flat. The rhymed verse is lively and rhythmic, but the phrasing is often forced and awkward. The uninspired watercolor illustrations resemble the artwork found in old textbooks. A disappointing effort.AHeide Piehler, Shorewood Public Library, WI
