I'm not a dog lover, or even a big fan of narrative books. So I was quite surprised with how much I liked this book. London is a brilliant writer -- there truly is not a wasted word in this book.

Amy I've heard this one is a tear-jerker...

Corinne Do you think my kids would want to listen to it out loud (ages 6 and 8)?

Melissa Hmmm... I'm not sure. I could probably see reading it to the 8 yo, but... it's a lot of narrative. And while I found it interesting, I'm not sure how kids would take it. (You could always try it and see....)
