This book was my first favorite book and has stuck with me for the past 50+ years! I had no idea it was written in 1884. I guess that's because dogs and cruel people have been with us forever. This is a wonderful story for kids and may well make them booklovers! If you haven't read it, please do yourself a favor and add it to your list!
