"In advance, I’m telling you that if you are a dog person, DONT READ THIS BOOK!!!! When I had to read it in school (I just reread it because I found it in my attic) it terrified me...and now I remember why. SPOILER: If you are all for the well-being of dogs and are sad when they get hurt, I would stay clear from this book. <br/>I don’t mean to offend anyone who does like this book, but it made me really sad to read."
"A classic good book about the journey of a dog. It’s descriptive and imaginative."
