    Enjoyable

    This is a really good book! Andi annd her brother, Bruce, find an abandoned home, and some strays. They can't take the strays home--their parents, Andi, and Bruce are staying with their Aunt Alice, who is extremely allergic to dogs. They take the dogs to the abandoned home, and take care of them there.

    What a fun childrens' book! Both my brother and I liked "Ho

    What a fun childrens' book! Both my brother and I liked "Hotel for Dogs". It was a charming, childhood story. After all, wouldn't every pet-loving kid relish in the idea of creating a hotel for doggie visitors? Sounds like a terrific idea to me. I wish that I could join in the with the characters in the book. If you're looking for a fun book with new original storyline concepts, this should be the one you pick up.

    Mkay No...

    I LOVE this book, its cute and sweet and nice and a good book to read. Key word BOOK. If I didn't know that there was a book though, I would like the movie, but ever since I read the book, I just can't take the movie seriously. I can't even compare them! The only thing that is the same is the intention of the "hotel" and the fact that they are brother and sister. No hotel, no pet shop, no love connection, NO FOSTER CHILDREN!! Really, they can't even say that it is based off of the book. 'Cuz its not! Its nothing NOTHING like the book!! I just cannot watch the movie. I can't take it anymore. I reccommend people to read it. You will see. Let me name a couple... Friday= GIRL Hotel = ABANDONED HOUSE They are not foster children, they just moved, and they still live with their parents. They don't get separated, He is older, They both have their friends, but there are three girls and two boys 'cuz she has two friends and he has one, They are going to school, He is working with his friend, They go to DIFFERENT schools, They don't exactly save all of those dogs, They have a totally different motive throughout the story (not the whole "hotel" thing, and well, its just a LOT simpler in the book. Please read it then watch the movie. its is WAY different.

    Cute Book...Nothing Like the Movie

    I think some of the characters taught a lesson about not mistreating your dog or it might get taken away.
    It's a great book, but a very simple read for 11-year-old. We bought the book before the movie's release, so it was fun to compare the actual book to the movie. They were not alike in many ways. For example, the characters' names weren't the same, the dogs in the book weren't the same in the movie, and the large hotel in the movie wasn't in the book.
    I liked the book better. It was a cuter story and the kids weren't "criminals."

    Reviewed by Sally Kruger aka "Readingjunky" for TeensReadToo.com

    It was a fun trip back into the past to review Lois Duncan's HOTEL FOR DOGS. <BR/><BR/>I first read this heart-warming story about 10 years ago with my daughter. Now, with a few changes I've heard, it's a major motion picture. <BR/><BR/>In the original 1971 version, Liz and her brother, Bruce, leave their home in New Mexico to move to the east coast. Their father has accepted a new job, and they are temporarily moving in with Aunt Alice. It might be the beginning of a great new adventure, except Liz is extremely unhappy because her beloved pet, Bebe, has had to stay behind. Aunt Alice made it very clear that the dachshund was not welcome in her house since she is terribly allergic to dogs. <BR/><BR/>Shortly after their arrival, Liz and Bruce meet up with Jerry, the son of Aunt Alice's next-door neighbors. They actually meet Jerry's beautiful Irish setter first. Although the dog is gorgeous and seems quite friendly, Jerry is not. Liz is shocked to watch the cruel way Jerry treats his own dog. She feels awful for the dog and misses her own Bebe even more. <BR/><BR/>One day a shaggy little stray dog appears in Aunt Alice's yard. It hops up on the porch, and Liz begs her mother to let her bring it something to eat. Her mother forbids her to feed the dog, saying that if she does, it will never leave and that would be unfair to Aunt Alice. Later that evening, during a terrible thunderstorm, the little stray somehow ends up in the house and scampers upstairs, only noticed by Liz. By the time she is able to excuse herself to follow it upstairs, it is nowhere to be found. <BR/><BR/>The next day when she convinces Bruce to help her search for the dog, they discover it in a closet. But now instead of just one stray dog, there are three brand new puppies as well. What should they do? They can't possibly keep a dog and three puppies in the house when Aunt Alice sneezes if they just mention the word dog. Bruce agrees to keep the secret until they can figure out a place to keep the animals. <BR/><BR/>It doesn't take long for Bruce to realize the empty house at the end of the street might provide just the place for a new family of dogs. Liz couldn't agree more, and soon their plan to save a few animals becomes much more than they ever dreamed. <BR/><BR/>HOTEL FOR DOGS is a cute story geared to independent readers ages 9-12 and an excellent read-aloud for even younger audiences. Anyone with a soft spot for pets will enjoy this one.
