In this episode all the old gang is her; Gunner and Panda and of course the naïve "pup" Tyler. They join their human pack member, Tyler in a money making adventure, first with a lemonade stand and then Tyler's brilliant idea of renting "condo" space to families of robins.
Glass presents very informative stories by having his characters weave in and out of reality where the canine members of the family take on human characteristics and personas. This is not merely an exercise in the anthropomorphizing of the animal characters, but rather replacing their actions and deeds with those of their human counter parts. This is a difficult task the writer has set himself, but he has pulled it off well. I am not quite sure how he manages it, but it truly works! His methods are actually quite unique in their own right.
Anyone who has ever had a dog as a member of the family will be able to instantly relate to this work. The author uses his beagles they way many use their children in teaching values and ethics. Now it need not be beagles (a fine breed of dog) that you need to identify with. No, my wife and I are Boston Terrier people but the transition between the actions of the Beagles and Boston Terriers is seamless.
The text of this book, as with the previous, is crisp and easy to follow. The transition between reality and the world of "Sleepytown" is extremely smooth and nothing is lost. Just as important as the story line and skill in writing this book offers, is the moral and ethical lessons taught...they are priceless
Readers will note that the art work in this current book is different than the others. Even though I had absolutely no problem with the illustrations in the first four books, I find this current offering quite pleasing.
Do yourself a favor and join this family of humans and fascinating fur people...you won't regret it!

Penny's Fourth of July: Sleepytown Beagles
These Sleepytown Beagles books--this is the fifth--all contain gentle life lessons set into a well-thought-out little story. Ben is trying to earn money to buy a telescope; Tyler wants to help but his efforts backfire. Yet with a great idea and the whole gang pulling together, they succeed in the end. It's a good lesson for the young "eager beagle" Tyler.
Though the stories take place in my neighborhood, or maybe yours, there's a magical quality when the Beagles go to Sleepytown. Wouldn't you love to know more about this place where the Beagles work together and find solutions to their problems, in the time between "good night" and "good morning?" These are the most perfect bedtime stories ever. My youngest grand-daughter needs a soft sell at bedtime and I'm betting she'll love this gentle book. She may not be able to mention its classy hard-cover presentation or the great way the illustrations support the story, but she's going to fall in love with the Beagles. I certainly did!
Linda Bulger, 2010
The story makes some good points: working towards a goal and working together to achieve that goal. Even though you may want to help someone achieve their goal, you must do it the right way. No shortcuts. But I like the fact that the author does not do this in a preachy manner.
Let me wrap this up by saying "More Sleepytown Beagles, please".
Tim teaches children the importance of honest work to achieve their goals. Life lessons learned by beagles. This is wonderful book for children of all ages.
I highly recommend the Sleepytown Beagles book series! Can't wait to give it to my granddaughter!
My daughter is a great fan of the Sleepytown Beagles series and has been waiting for the next book to arrive. With its' new look and delightful theme, The Lemonade Stand will delight, and educate with it's life-lesson, every child that read it or has it read to them. Timothy Glass has developed a wonderful way of teaching our children and grandchildren about life. I can't recommend this book or the complete Sleepytown Beagles series enough.
