I liked it until it got overly ridiculous--- A rabbi in a Catholic Church preaching about a dog named Santa Paws on Christmas morning.

This book is about a lost dog. The dog didn't have anyone, but wanted a family badly. One thing I did notice is that each page has the words on every other page. The dog keeps you wondering what he is going to do next. Then, the last page makes you smile. The "Santa Paws" finally has a family to love.
