One morning in May five little dachshunds are born. They grow up the way puppies do, and at first they all look exactly alike. But after nine weeks Pretzel starts growing -- and growing -- and growing: fully grown, Pretzel is the longest dachshund in all the world. He easily wins a blue ribbon at the dog show and is admired by everyone -- everyone but Greta, the little dachshund across the street, who doesn't care for long dogs. Pretzel is unable to win Greta's heart until the day she needs rescuing, when the only dog who can save her must be very, very long. This classic story begins and ends with puppies -- delightful from start to finish.
