Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

“The storytelling is crisp and clean, and the focus is squarely on the child-animal relationships, with a bit of family dynamics worked in.” --BCCB
 
"The book is well designed for readers moving up to chapter books, with its short sentences, wellspaced lines of type, and attractive illustrations." --Booklist
 
“The tale of Logan’s efforts to locate his lost dog rings completely true…The believable plot and inherent suspense will keep readers turning the pages of this fine addition to early chapter books, which will resonate with both pet lovers and children involved in divorces.” --Kirkus Reviews

Children's Literature - Kristi Bernard
Logan has a best friend and his name is Bear. They do everything together. The only problem now is that Logan's parents are separating and his dad wants to take Bear with him to the mountains. Logan pleads with his parents and Bear will go with him and his mother to the city. It is hard enough for Logan to deal with his parents splitting, he could not make it through without Bear. Meet Hannah. She wants a dog. She would bathe it, feed it, and walk it everyday. Her parents do not think she is ready for such responsibility. Instead, Hannah spends her time helping out at the Rainbow Street Shelter. It is not too bad. The animals really need her. On their way to the big city Logan and his mom stop for lunch. When they finish, Bear is no longer in the car. Panic stricken they search everywhere. Bear is lost. When Hannah's dad arrives home in his old pickup, he has a passenger. A happy black and white dog. This is unexpected and Hannah wants to keep him. Unfortunately the dog ends up at the Rainbow Street Shelter. Will Logan ever get Bear back? Will Hannah ever get a dog of her own? Orr has done a wonderful job of putting together a fun story for kids. Young readers who love animals will be eagerly turning the pages to see what happens with Bear, Logan and Hannah. Reviewer: Kristi Bernard
Kirkus Reviews

With a limited vocabulary perfect for readers just edging into chapter books, the tale of Logan's efforts to locate his lost dog rings completely true.

After Logan's parents separate, he and his mother and Border collie, Bear, head for a new home in the suburbs, but Bear gets lost. Shortly afterward, Hannah's father finds the missing pet in the back of his truck. Hannah is desperate for a pet, but her parents decide to leave the dog at the Rainbow Street Shelter (the name of this new series) to give him his best chance for return to his owners. There Hannah begins volunteering with the animals, recognizing their need for affection. Logan, miserable over leaving his family's farm and his parents' break-up, is devastated by the loss of his beloved dog. As his parents try to track down Bear and Hannah's parents recognize her growing level of responsibility, glimmers of hope appear for both children. While the very brief text, accompanied by frequent attractive black-and-white illustrations, doesn't give room for extensive character development, the essentials are effectively captured.

The believable plot and inherent suspense will keep readers turning the pages of this fine addition to early chapter books, which will resonate with both pet lovers and children involved in divorces.(Fiction. 7-10)
