Contributor Bio(s): To research this book, Louis Sachar actually tasted dog food. “It’s just the way I described it in the book,” says Louis. “Like cereal. But kind of gritty.”

Reviewed by Horn Book Guide Reviews (Horn Book Guide Reviews 1994)
When his third-grade teacher pays Marvin to take care of her old dog, Waldo, while she's away, his friends think Marvin is ""the luckiest kid in the whole world"" -- until Waldo dies. Sachar's finely tuned sense of how children think and feel make this fourth book about Marvin and his comic misadventures entertaining. Black-and-white drawings illustrate the story.
