Reviews

"This endearing story of a down-on-his-luck pooch who will not give up is both inspiring and entertaining. . . . A heartwarming tale that primary grade students will enjoy hearing."--School Library Journal

"A scrawny but intelligent hound dog finds a home by winning over the reluctant farmer. . . . Evocative illustrations in watercolor and colored pencil use a muted palette that suits the sad, earnest demeanor of the homeless dog trying to make a place for himself. . . . Humorous, with a bittersweet edge."--Kirkus Reviews
