Read in February, 2012

Well written dog-story with a complex balance between sweet , sad and heartwarming (but 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 over come his abusive background ( with the most terrorizing figure in it - the inanimate broom ) and find someone to trust and love? Never too downbeat to stop the enjoyment , and with enough adventures and characters to keep any reader interested it's a worthwhile read! Best yet - it's not a bit dated.
