Praise for One Dog and His Boy
"Readers who have grown to love Ibbotson's bighearted heroes and larger-than-life adventure stories will relish this final novel." —Publishers Weekly
"Ibbotson's last novel is a mix of adventure, caricature and child-and-dog love, in which loyal friends, skuduggerous louts and obtuse adults all have a part. The comforting feeling that everything will turn out right is nicely mixed with the spice of humour." —The Toronto Star
"Ibbotson's final book is a story with the heart of Lassie and the satirical bite of Roald Dahl...Themes of loyalty, greed, devotion, and home are woven through a text that is as funny as it is satisfying." —Booklist
"A rousing, slightly surreal tale of rescue and redemption, this effort will appeal to animal lovers everywhere." —Kirkus
"This satisfying novel combines humor with heart to great effect-a lovely parting gift from the masterful storyteller." —School Library Journal
