1 of 1 people found the following review helpful By E. S. Charpentier on February 9, 2014
Format: Paperback
In the latest Stanley family novel, 6 year old Blair has been sleepwalking lately and talking about seeing a dog no one else can see. Also, some escaped convicts might be hiding in the woods nearby. Meanwhile, David is dealing with a bully at school. The blended family also grows closer throughout the course of this novel.
I really admire Snyder for being able to tell a tale that is interesting and plausible and, while meant for children, is also enjoyable to an adult reader.

3 of 5 people found the following review helpful By Margaret Fiore on April 5, 1999
Format: Paperback
This is a gripping tale of children's loyalty to each other and a frightened and fearful dog. An adventure with self-discovery - one of Ms. Snyder's specialties. As are all of hers, this is a wonderful page-turner.
