Product Details

Praise

Astute adults may quickly recognize Charlie’s daily routine as likely compulsions related to a canine version of obsessive-compulsive disorder. Though compulsions are rarely so easily conquered in real life, the simple story may encourage young readers who have their own habits and patterns in an attempt to ease their worry. Charming; readers will hope for more adventures for Charlie and his friends.
—Kirkus Reviews

Milne places her expressively drawn all-animal cast in pleasant suburban surroundings while gently suggesting that when Charlie dares to vary his routine a smidge, what happens may be wonderful rather than terrible…this canine storytime companion for Jennifer Black Reinhardt’s feline Blue Ethel (2017) could give children whose attachment to daily rituals is more a stage than a symptom a bit of a nudge.
—Booklist Online

…the story provides an accessible introduction to how worry can affect the life of a child, or a dachshund. An appealing story that can serve as a useful conversation starter for discussions about childhood anxiety and dealing with change.
—School Library Journal
