I thought that this book was great. I really like dogs and the book is only 140 something pages long. the book is really well detailed and i like all the characters in the book too. from libby the quiet drawer, chilko the proud husky, J the adventorus and rebel teen, and the snobby aunt laura. It might sound stupid in the review, but it's areally good book. 5 STARS FOR SURE.

Nobody's Dog is a great book. The story involves a boy named Jacob and a dog he sees outside his window one night. Jacob hasn't had a great since the car crash that killed his parents, what makes it worse is that he only has vague memory's of the crash. Once he meets a stary dog Jacob and the dog go exploring to find his memory. Nobody's Dogs is a very good book and a great read.

Nobody's dog is a book that can be funny but also serious. If you like dogs or can make a connection to a a dog experience you would most Likely like this book. It takes you on a journey of feelings and sympathy. It does not take very long to read and is great.

I enjoyed this book very much even though its not in my age group. It was written very well. I loved the main character & found when the story was over I wanted to know how things eventually turned out for him
