Reviews
*"Lynch, master of the "show, don't tell" school of writing, goes to the dogs in a story lit up by examples of kindness, empathy, and people (and pooches!) helping people over rough spots in their lives."--Booklist, STARRED Review "02/01/24"
"Lynch infuses Louis's narration with a breezy, sometimes mature vernacular, crisp wit, and powerful emotions surrounding the intense joy, sorrow, and wisdom that come with canine companionship."--Publishers Weekly "12/04/23"
"Without sugarcoating crises, (Walkin' The Dog) tenderly underscores how love and trust can shepherd lost kids toward hopeful futures."--Kirkus Reviews "01/01/24"
