Synopsis

Steven Kellogg's irrepressible Great Dane, Pinkerton, has been entertaining children for over twenty years with madcap tales full of humor and hubbub. Pinkerton has foiled a burglar, "borrowed" a hot-air balloon, chomped on a dinosaur bone, and turned a dog show upside down, to name a few of his misadventures. Now he's back with more charming mischief, as his dreams of adopting a penguin chick somehow end up tossing a football game into one big huddle . . . and that's just the beginning.

The latest Pinkerton from Kellogg is a bit too all over the place to sustain an actual story line, and Pinkerton is too distracted to play even a fantasy role of a father.
