This book is about two lonely old people going threw some ups and downs to meet each other. They became friends eventually. i didn't like this story too much as it was kind of long and drawn out. The illustrations were not very child-friendly or captivating.

This books is a story about Mrs. de Vere finding a friendship with her dog and a story about Mr. Derry finding a friendship with his dog. One day, the two dogs find a friendship and bring together Mrs. de Vere and Mr. Derry creating an irreplaceable bond between.
I would teach this book in the lesson about how common characteristics and interests can bring together two unlikely people.
