Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

In this addition to Christopher's The Dog That . . . series, young Mike is scheduled to pitch against the toughest team in the league, but he's pitching wild. Mike once again calls on his dog Harry, who happens to be gifted with ESP. Harry can telepathically communicate information on each batter's weaknesses and strengths to his master. This works early on, but by the game's important climax, Mike has gained confidence and is guided by his own instincts. He pitches a no-hitter. Although this is a sports fantasy directed at the early chapter-book audience, it strains credulity and is so predictable and preachy that all but the most diligent fans of the series will lose interest early on. Ages 6-8.

Format: Paperback
I liked this book very much. It is a story about a boy named Mike and his dog Harry. Mike and Harry can read each other's minds. Mike is a pitcher for his baseball team and Harry helps him know how to pitch to the batters. It is a good story about how a boy and his dog can be best friends.

Format: Kindle Edition
I was deeply disappointed in finding that I could not download this book into my Windows 8.1 computer to read with the latest Kindle for PC app. I don't understand why it would not work for me, so I cancelled the sale and asked for my money back. I cannot offer a true review of the book because I was never able to download it and read it.
