Read in February, 2012

Well written dog-story with a complex balance between sweet, sad and heartwarming ( Dejong works it out beautifully!) The story begins on the sad side. The focus being on the abused and abandoned dog Candy who lives a life of constant fear and hunger. He keeps to the shadows fearing all humans. He has no one to love and no one loves him. Which becomes the question of the story - will he ever overcome his abusive background, ( with the most terrorizing figure in it - the inanimate broom ) and will he ever find someone to trust and love? Never too downbeat and with enough adventures and characters to keep any reader interested it's a worthwhile read! Best yet - it's not a bit dated. If you love retro 80's books check out my site -
