Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
K-Gr 3-Clements tells a compelling story in an easy-to-read format. After the McDonalds adopted Norman from an animal shelter, they found out that the dog was going blind. Norman's disability was worrisome at first, but once the family adjusted, Norman did too. He was even a hero in the end. There is just enough action to hold young readers' attention as the story comes to its climax. Beier's soft, comfy watercolors complement the message of family loyalty and potential. Even though the pet is handicapped, and taking care of him is more work, the family members adore him, and he, in turn, thrives despite his limitations. Children will be charmed by this lovable pooch and his ability to overcome his obstacles and help others.-Holly T. Sneeringer, St. Mark School, Baltimore, MD Copyright 2001 Cahners Business Information.
