The Lovereading4Kids comment

This is an absolutely delightful and heart-warming animal tale about a puppy that gets dumped in the park by its owner. As he learns to fend for himself with the help of other strays, his life becomes both exciting and frightening but can he survive the harsh world of being a stray in a city where humans are a constant threat to survival.

A heart-warming tale about a puppy who finds a new home with a pack of wild dogs when his owner abandons him in New York's Central Park.


Howe's children's-book debut presents a charming, mostly episodic tale complete with endearing characters. --ALA Booklist
