Gr 4 6—Bial introduces man's best friend and informs readers about the poor treatment that many of them receive from puppy mills, backyard breeders, pet stores, and some owners. He tells of his own experiences adopting pets and shares heartrending and touching stories. Full-color photos appear on every page; many scream to readers to avoid places that hurt animals and go straight to animal shelters instead. Looking at the Champaign County Humane Society in Illinois, the author shows what those veterinarians, technicians, and volunteers do to prepare a dog for a happy life in the home of a caring owner. Packed with information about the history of dogs and animal-welfare organizations, the book also introduces some individuals who do foster care and work for the ASPCA. Bial suggests a seven-step process on how to adopt. The suggestions for further reading are divided among younger readers, older readers, and adults.—Nancy Call, Santa Cruz Public Libraries, Aptos, CA
