Reviews

"Animal lovers of all ages will cherish this moving tale of man's--or in this case, boy's--best friend." --Publishers Weekly, starred review"Martin's book honors the unique companionship and healing powers that have earned dogs the title of man's best friend, and it will resonate with both the reader who is already a dog owner or who, like Henry, pines to be one." --Shelf Awareness"[Martin] artfully alternates and gradually weaves together threads from the canine and human tales until the three stories converge in time anad space into a completely heartwarming and satisfying finale. Essential fare for fans of the perfectly crafted canine tale." --Kirkus, starred review"This is a sensitive, gentle read that surrounds its occasional heartbreak with plenty of hope and warm feelings." --Booklist"This is a touching and ultimately happy story that will appeal to fans of Phyllis Reynolds Naylor's Shiloh (S & S, 1991) and Fred Gipson's Old Yeller (HarperCollins, 1942), as well as to a wider audience." --School Library Journal"It is clear that Martin is not writing a conventional dog story but a serious and very fine book about life, death, and the need to keep going in order to find joy again, whether one is a human or a dog." --Horn Book Review
