Calvin Coconut is a great 3rd-5th grade series, starring a boy any kid can relate to, with a somewhat offbeat family that is, none the less, full of love, & a group of fun friends. The unique flavor of the books due to the location being in Hawaii makes them stand out, especially with the language & local customs (kids are going to have a fun time learning what cuttlefish are, & picturing kids actually liking to eat them). In this story, Calvin decides what he really needs in life is a dog, & he goes about trying to convince his reluctant mother that he should have one, with the help of her boyfriend Ledward. This is a fantastic topic for a book for kids of this age, & they will enjoy reading about his visits to the local Humane Society, which Ledward calls "Dog Heaven". A fun read.
