Love heals the heart is the message of this heartwarming tale of a boy who saves a lost dog and vice versa. Cody had his own dog once but his painful loss is buried deeper than the feeding dish Cody hides away in his closet. Until Cody meets a four-footed friend needier than he is -- a sad, lost dog from a mysterious blue house. Both learn to trust and love again. I was gripped by this touching story. And the beautiful illustrations give extra power to Blumenthal's words.
