    A reviewer

    I am 11 years old and most books sort of bore me. This book was outstanding! I can't wait to read the next one, The Boy Who Returned From the Sea. I wish these books would be made into movies!!!!

    Short but Fantastic

    I read this book in 1 day because it was really great. It was emotional in the end and I can't wait for the next one. Really! The way it was written, and the way it showed the dogs point of view and the boys point of view was really cool. The end of the story was left open for a sequel, but I haven't found out if there is one. But I sure hope so!

    Target audience is younger, yet I still LOVED the book!

    When I decided to read this book, I noticed that it was intended for an audience younger than myself, and that almost detered me from reading it. I'm glad it didn't. This is by far my favorite book, and I am trying to get ahold of another copy, and it's sequel which I have not yet read, but I am sure it will be as great as the first one. Jack makes a good main character from the human point-of-view, and Moxie is so loveable, and not just because she is a Border Collie (I LOVE Border Collies). It is an original read, and the dogs' views on humans make humans have second thoughts about their furry friends and their views on us. I look forward to reading it again and again, as it is that kind of book. It is not a long read for the people who are not very fond of reading, and is definently worth it.
