The Lovereading4Kids comment
In a nutshell: home | adventuring | a home again Best known for the Babysitters Club, Ann M Martin here tells the story of a dog, and with the warmth and understanding that made that series so popular. There’s nothing special about Squirrel, this isn’t a story of heroics, though she is brave when she has to be. Instead, it’s a story of finding your way, enjoying the good things and coping with the bad, and learning to trust and to love. Squirrel is a stray, and for most of the book has to cope alone; not till the very last chapters does she find somewhere safe to stay. She tells her story calmly, without anger or bitterness when things go badly, and never asks for readers’ sympathy: she’s a dog, and she leads a dog’s life. It makes for a very affecting story, and one which will enthral readers.
A Dog's Life by Ann M. Martin
Born in a garden shed and separated from her family, stray puppy, Squirrel, has a life filled with surprises, setbacks and adventures as she bravely journeys from town to town, encountering friends and foes, both animal and human, in her search for a place to call home. Told entirely from Squirrel’s canine perspective, this touching tale offers a gorgeous contemporary twist on the classic animal adventure story.
"Heartwrenching and heartwarming" - Kirkus
