Fans will enjoy these reissues of four books about the lovable Great Dane who creates chaos wherever he goes. [Review covers these titles: Pinkerton, Behave!; Prehistoric Pinkerton; A Rose for Pinkerton; Tallyho, Pinkerton.]
Publishers Weekly

In this series, a Great Dane consistently finds himself in humorous adventures such as flunking out of obedience school, getting disguised as a stegosaurus, behaving like a cat, and getting trapped in a hot air balloon. PW called the "action-filled, colorful pictures, as funny as the story." Ages 4-8. (Mar.)

School Library Journal
K-Gr 2- Pinkerton, Behave! has been adored by young readers and their families for 35 years, so the author's decision to revise and reillustrate the story of an enthusiastic Great Dane gives fans a pleasant excuse to take another look. Pinkerton has a kind of auditory dyslexia: when told to fetch, he attacks; when commanded to come, he goes; asked to bark loudly, he displays affection. After his expulsion from obedience school, the mother and daughter who are his family learn to turn his unique responses to his best advantage, setting an excellent example for Pinkerton-like humans and their loved ones. Some of Kellogg's changes are cosmeticdifferent colors, perspectives, and phrasingwhile others are more substantive. Those who read both versions will notice that the burglar no longer carries a gun and the mother now holds a cell phone. Children may enjoy comparing the old and new versions, both of which are wonderfully silly, clever, and entertaining. Susan Weitz, formerly at Spencer-Van Etten School District, Spencer, NY

Pinkerton doesn't understand his owner’s commands. When told to come, he jumps out the window. When asked to fetch, he destroys the slippers instead. Pinkerton’s desperate owners take him to obedience school, but he flunks out in record time. Then one night a burglar breaks into their house, and Pinkerton is able to put his bad habits to good use.
This silly charmer of a story was included on the Booklist and Horn Book best of the year lists and inspired four sequels about the impossibly clueless but irresistibly sweet Pinkerton. Now, in honor of its 35th anniversary, Steven Kellogg has updated the art and text (most notably removing the gun that appeared in the original edition), and has written an introductory note about the book’s history.
