Charming story of a blind sled dog. Written in first person from the dogs point of view. Based on the actual events experienced by this dog. Recommended for 7+ years. Harsh events are tactfully managed.
I enjoyed this book and appriciated the emphisis on the abilities and strengths of the handicaped.

This is 1 in a series of three books and would be excellent reading for all young adults. Actually, the way things are in the present world, I think it should be mandatory.
There is so much in video games, some music and many areas of life that teach a disrespect for all forms of life that anything teaching empathy and the value of good judgement is a must to guide these young people. We really have to impress the good in life on them as early as possible.

Sweet book written from the dog's point of view. But what I found incredibly irritating were the many, many, MANY grammatical and spelling errors. Did anyone proofread? It was a total distraction from what should have been a nice, easy read.

It was a double thumbs up. It's pretty cool that Rivers can run on a sled dog team blind. Jada 7 yrs old

The fire that night in the first floor restaurant of the 6-story building where they lived only added ambience to the event of Mike's birth, while serving as an omen of the adventures to come. So how did a New York City kid, born in blizzard e ...more
