About the Author

Hans Augusto Rey was born in Hamburg, Germany in 1898. As a child, he spent much of his free time in that city's famous Hagenbeck Zoo drawing animals. After serving in the army during World War I, he married Margret Rey and they moved to Montmartre for four years. The manuscript for the first Curious George books was one of the few items the Reys carried with them on their bicycles when they escaped from Paris in 1940. Eventually, they made their way to the United States, and Curious George was published in 1941. Curious George has been published in numerous languages. And many, many Curious George books have followed.

This was my favorite book as a child, although I discovered in later years that my parents had changed his girlfriend's name to Gretchen when reading it aloud since my name is Greta! I'd recommend this to anyone since it shows kids it's okay to be different and problems can be overcome with patience. I've been searching for this for years and am thrilled to finally own it. When I got my dachshund I immediately named him after this book.

This is such a charming tale about a male dachshund named Pretzel trying to win the affections of his lady-friend. He tries all kinds of antics to woo her and impress her, but it isn't until he rescues her from a deep hole that he truly wins her heart. A must for every child! I still love to read it and I'm 26!

Format: Paperback
I far preferred Pretzel to Curious George because I've always been partial to dogs, especially hounds. I actually knew a little black dachshund named Gretchen and several brown ones named Gretel, so I had to smile at jealous Greta who had a prejudice toward long dogs and rebuffed Pretzel until Pretzel bailed her out of a jam. Greta was also jealous of Pretzel's blue ribbon, which she won in a dog show. Pretzel demonstrates class and character to help one who had never been nice to her.

I was so excited to find this book available for purchase. This was my favorite book as a child, and I loved books! I've never known anyone who ever heard of this book. I have always referred to dachshunds as pretzel dogs, and nobody would understand why. So now I'm about to be a grandma, and I'm buying it for the baby & for me; one copy for each of us. I hope he and his parents enjoy it as much as I always did. Coincidentally, they have a dachshund. I love this book!

I have looked and looked for this book because it was out of print for some time. I have an old paperback copy, but it is getting pretty worn. I was delighted to find I could order it here, and in hardback no less! This is one of my favorite books!
