The longest dachshund in the world, Pretzel is admired by all and the winner of a blue ribbon at the dog show. Only Greta, the little dachshund across the street, doesn't care for long dogs.

More About H. A. Rey & Margret Rey

H. A. Rey 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 studied philology and natural science at the University of Hamburg. He then 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 many languages, including French, German, Japanese, Afrikaans, and Norwegian. Additional Curious George books followed, as well as such other favorites as CECILY G. AND THE NINE MONKEYS and FIND THE CONSTELLATIONS.

H. A. Rey was born in 1898 and died in 1977.

Reviews - What do customers think about Pretzel?

More Power to the Dachshund!!  Mar 16, 2008
I bought this book because I had enjoyed the "Curious George" books that were written by the original authors. I was NOT disappointed! In fact, I enjoyed this book much more than any of the "Curious George" books I have ever read. An unusual dachshund overcomes adversity to win the love of his favorite lady dachshund. Like many of the previous reviewers, I, too, am owned by a dachshund. My dachshund is the best "inheritance" I've ever received.
Pretzel  Jun 13, 2006
Pretzel is so cute.He is so big and cute. He had four other siblings. Pretzel started getting wider and wider. He was the tallest dachund ever. Pretzel one his first award at a dog show. All the dogs and the people admired him. Only one dog didn't Greta. Greta didn't like long dogs. Pretzel was a hero after he rescued Greta. See Greta got stuck in a hole. Thanks to his long body he was a hero. Greta and Pretzel got married!
Short Story About a Long Dog  Dec 2, 2005
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.
It was my favorite as a kid  Aug 18, 2005
This was one of my favorite books as a kid and we always had dachshunds so I bought a replacement for my kids. It's a very cute story!
