I agree with 5 stars being the average consumer rating. It is a story of a nameless dog who finds a home. As it thinks life is just the children, they go to school during the day, and terror and frigtening, not to mention a broom, are awaiting him at home.
Car accident, Candy looks for a new home. When he does, the indivials there love him, and when he needs to hurry home at the end, he does on the last sentence.
Ask for quiet as you settle down and begin to read one of Meindert DeJong's best Newbery Honor book. You can omit this last sentence: be sure to look for Along came a Dog and The house of Sixty Fathers at your local library, another great Newbery Honor books by the great Hans Christian Andersen Medal winner author Meindert DeJong. If you like Caldecott books, however, he's the author of Where the Wild Things Are!
