Waylon thinks most problems can be solved with science. But when it comes to having to share a dog with Baxter Boylen, science may not be very helpful. Baxter is the closest thing to a juvenile delinquent Waylon has ever met. He's always getting called to Principal Rice's office, and now he's even having meetings with the chief of police. At least the two boys can visit their dog, Dumpster Eddy, while they're at the station. Eddy is behind bars in the Stray Animals' Lock-up. When a new Animal Control officer takes over, it looks as though the dog's days are numbered. Waylon comes up with a science-y plan to save Eddy, but can he trust Baxter to help him carry it out?

"For the second time, narrator Christopher Gebauer animates the character Waylon, a fourth grader who is sensitive and "science-y." The sequel begins soon after the first audiobook ends. Waylon is struggling to save "Dumpster Eddy," the stray dog he's come to love. To prevent Eddy from being sent to a distant shelter in just 10 days, Waylon enlists the help of his classmate, Baxter, who is known for getting into trouble. As Waylon's perception of Baxter changes from juvenile delinquent to collaborator, Gebauer projects Waylon's growing affection for his friend. Gebauer smoothly weaves Waylon's recitations of scientific facts into the narrative, adding dimension to his character. Quick pacing, suspenseful conflict, and gentle humor make this story a good choice for family listening. S.W. © AudioFile 2018, Portland, Maine"
