"A Great Pyrenees dog named Odin narrates this dramatic story based on true events. The dog relates the harrowing tale in first-person present tense, adding dramatic suspense as the plot unfolds... The scenes of the nighttime fire and the hazy, gray day that follows, however, project a dreamlike effect that in combination with the posed animals conveys the nightmarish quality of the wildfire and its aftermath... A final page gives information about Great Pyrenees dogs. An entertaining story of a dog's brave behavior in a devastating wildfire."--Kirkus Reviews
