Product description

Review

"Here is a tale that warms the heart from top to bottom and back again. This is storytelling in all its glory." -- Kathi Appelt, author of the Newbery Honor Book The Underneath

* "Wholly satisfying.... A perfect selection for pet lovers new to chapter books and anyone who just enjoys a cheerful dog story.", Kirkus Reviews, starred review

* “The rapid, immediate free verse will grab readers with first the longing and loneliness and then, on contrast, the boy and dog in bliss. Great for sharing with pet lovers.”, Booklist, starred review

“Marion Dane Bauer delicately showcases yearning in so many hearts, human and animal. Buddy, a female dog so named by her first owner because she was his buddy, loses one home and moves through another before emerging as a much-loved Ruby at the end. Telling the story in short poems, which highlight central characters, allows Bauer to make the story accessible to many different readers. The lines can dwell on Buddy's cute ears or the “eyes as blue as a Caribbean sea” of a lonely older man, or the wonderful dog-dominating skills of a cat named Fido. A great read-aloud.”, Chicago Tribune

"Newbery Honor–author Bauer (On My Honor) crafts distinct voices for each character and develops a strong sense of place in the close-knit town of Erthly. . . . Any child who has ever longed for a pet or tried to convince a parent to give in to a dear wish will identify with Mark.", Publishers Weekly

"Written in poetry form, this title is a wonderful story for dog lovers and those who like a little mystery—the reader does not find out until the end of the book how each character’s story relates others. This is perfect for a read-aloud or to read alone.", Library Media Connection
