Item Description...
Pinkerton doesn't understand his owner's commands. When told to come, he jumps out the window. When asked to fetch the newspaper, he destroys it. Pinkerton's desperate owner sends 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.

"Humor abounds in this exuberant tale . . . Kellogg at his best." (Booklist, starred review)

NOT FOR YOUNG KIDS!  Mar 11, 2008
I picked up this book at the library for my 4 and 6 year olds. I usually scan through the books before checking them out, but this one got away from me. I was shocked and then mad, while reading this to my kids, to see a scary man breaking in through a bedroom window with a gun in his hand!! He then threatened the mother and held the gun to her head!!! GEE - fun stuff kids - it's a laugh riot!

My bad for not checking through every page - but isn't there a certain level of "safeness" implied in children's books - especially ones with goofy dogs on the front???

Wonderful pictures and story  Jan 10, 2007
Steven Kellogg books are my favorites to give as gifts. The pictures are marvelous and each time you read the book you see something you had missed before. I love all the Pinkerton books, The Missing Mitten, and the Jimmy's Boa series. My son (now 15 years old) loved these books as a child, we checked them out of the library again and again. As to the reviewers that are concerned about the gun, I just went and looked at my son again and so far he seems completely normal.
Pinkerton, Behave Or I'll Blow Your Brains Out   Oct 21, 2005
The funny thing about reading these reviews is that everyone focuses on the break in at the end. Even many pages before, all the monsters and burglars have guns and guns are a part of the "pictures". The story line could have been cute---My husband is the biggest advocate of gun ownership and has quite a collection, however the very first thing you teach a child is never ever to point even a toy gun at anyone, especially their head. The idea of a child watching their mother being held with a gun to her head and threatened to blow her brains out, not once but twice is totally not permissable. Not even if you are talking about a big doggie and his bad manners! Guns have no place on page illustrations of a child's book!!!
Not for young children  Jul 20, 2005
We checked this book out of the library for our 3-year old son without looking through it first. It had a cute title and a cute cover, plus our son loves dogs. Were we surprised! The story takes a dark twist at the end with the mom held at gun-point by a burglar, who basically threatens to kill them. We found this scary, not to mention inappropriate for a children's picture book. I cannot recommend this book to anyone with young children.
Lovely  Jul 20, 2005
Loved it, great story and pictures, Just as a Great Dane Puppy would behave!
