Book Overview

A Parents Best Children's Book of 2019

A warm, uplifting story about a boy, his dog, and the healing power of music marks a first-time collaboration between two former Irish Children's Laureates, Eoin Colfer and P.J. Lynch.

Patrick has been desperate for a dog of his own for as long as he can remember, and this summer, with his father away, he longs for a canine friend more than ever. Meanwhile, in his short doggy life, Oz has suffered at the hands of bad people. Somewhere out there, he believes, is an awesome boy -- his boy. And maybe, when they find each other, Oz will learn to bark again. Illustrated in light charcoal by two-time Kate Greenaway Medalist P.J. Lynch, this heartwarming story by Eoin Colfer, internationally best-selling author of the Artemis Fowl series, is certain to enchant.

   Precious puppy, some dark themes
I had to read the book before giving it away as I will never see it again, but I got it for my kids. It seems more advanced than I anticipated. I don't think my granddaughter will have a hard time reading it right away. There are some dark themes. The puppy is abandoned after being abused by his first owners. A little boy helps overcome his fear of people by finding and adopting him. The puppy has to help the little boy overcome the sadness that has entered his life.
   Not for young readers
I was going to give the book to my daughter, but I read the book before I did. The book was too much for her. This should be in the older kids box, since I got it with her Amazon prime book box. If the books are going to be inappropriate for her age, I might cancel my Amazon prime book box.
   Very sweet and real book for kids
A determined boy gets a rescue dog to trust him in this sweet book. His parents are divorcing but haven't told him yet, but he suspects something is going on. He made the dog his best friend. They help each other through trauma. The story shows the deep bond you can have with a dog, as they are like a best friend.
   Easy read for lower elementary but some adult topics
There are adult topics in the book about divorce and infidelity and conflict between parents that my child was asking me about.
   Precious story with equally amazing illustrations
I know many of my students who would love this book. They think everything is better with a dog because they have been like Patrick.
   This is not a book o give an early reader child with out reading it your self 1st.
It was bought for a niece. I'm glad I read it first. This example of teaching a child about how to care for a dog is worse than the sad story line. It's disappointing on so many levels. The artistic works in this book are great. I don't recommend this book unless you want your kids to see how a family can fall apart and how to care for a dog.
   Love is Strongest during adversity.
There are sad things in life. Love is stronger in the story. Well written and thought provoking for younger people.
   Beautiful story, a puppy who needs a boy and a boy who needs a puppy
A boy whose contact with his father is by texts is saved by a dog. Parents should decide if it's appropriate before buying it. When parents are having difficulty in their marriage, it could help a child. It is suitable for school age children.
   So dear
I got this for my grandson. I'm sure he's going to like it. I had to get it when I saw the dog on the cover.
   If I knew the story line I would not have bought this book.
The story was about divorce. It is not a story I would recommend to a young child. I'm giving the book to a therapist who helps children with emotional therapy.
