Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
Another pup is in the Christmas spotlight with this touching chapter book wherein boy meets dog, boy loses dog, boy gives dog away. Zach and his family adopt Tina, a rascally puppy whom they grow to love dearly, and they're heartbroken when she disappears. She's eventually discovered in the company of a homeless man, and Zach makes the ultimate sacrifice when he decides that the stranger needs a friend even more than he does. Sprinkled with supple watercolors and trimmed with thin red borders on each page, this gifty-looking volume gently tugs the heartstrings. Ages 4-8. (Oct.) Copyright 1999 Cahners Business Information.
Children's Literature - Jan Lieberman
This story will win your heart. From the moment Zack's family takes Tina into their home, the puppy controls their lives. She is mischievous, curious, impossible to discipline, but oh, so lovable! One night, Tina runs off. Rewards are offered, but no Tina. December is in full swing when Zack spots Tina with a scruffy-looking old man who is not about to give back his dog. It's all he has! The resolution of this story is just right for the holiday season. The book design is so cheery that you'll want to put it on your gift list.
