People may drift apart, but love can hold them together. A touching tale of pets and family told in the “venerable spare and moving style” of Newbery Medalist Patricia MacLachlan, author of Sarah, Plain and Tall (Booklist).
When William’s father leaves, his mother promptly goes out and adds four dogs and a cat to their lives. William’s sure that nothing can fill the hole left by his father, but the new additions to the family are determined to help. With his sister, Elinor, and his mother, William will learn that “family” can come in all shapes and sizes, because sometimes we find love through magic, and sometimes that magic is all around us.

Doll Dawg says this is charming!
Just finished reading this book with my Great Pyrenees dog, Doll at my side and it made my day. This story has tender characters with great insight. The fact that only some feel the magic of it only makes it better. This is a fast easy read that touched my heart. I can't wait to share it with my class of 5th graders.
I read this at least a week ago and it took me about two hours and it's a good and easy reading book. I would definitely recommend this to young or older readers, if you have read it, I hope you will like it too!📖 READ
