What can I say... It's brilliant!
"This books is about a boy, Authur Cane, who turns into dog" is what most people say about this book, but it's not. its about someone, just after a few weeks, sees how much people are cruel... and how loving people are too. Its about someone who relizes how much people are selfish and mean, but there are good sides to people as well. Ya, The guy does turn into a Dog, but the adventure that he takes you on is... well, I can't explain it. The book is brillian, the bad thing is a out of publish. You can't find it anywhere anymore. I know because My teacher look everywhere for the book and he could not find it. Finally he found it in the school libary. Nobody read it so they were going to give it away, then my teacher took it. He read it to the class. Brillian, funny, moving and drama, what can I say...
I can't explain it, just read it. I did (well actually heard it), and I love it!

This is not a review, it's a flat out rave!....I am such a shill for this book!...I read it as a teenager and it still ranks as one of my favorite books... my big brother made me read it, and he hated to read!LOL...but he LOVED this book...I have ordered a copy and can't wait to introduce my own teenage son to this wonderful book...don't let the "children's book" category throw you,either...it deals with enough adult issues to keep all ages glued to the pages, trust me!...5 outta 5 and I echo the above poster's feeling...I wanna give it more stars!!

I found this a very readable story. If Kafka can write about a man turning into a bug, and H. F. Saint can write about a man becoming invisible, and, for that matter, David Garnett can write about a lady turning into a fox, what's so crazy about a boy turning into a dog? I found I was eager to read the story, just to see what happened. I felt joy over each success of the central character and concern over each difficulty. A great book for those of us who remain boys at heart.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
This was one of my favorite books as a child - it shows that the values of life have less to do with environment and social standing and more to do with the human connections we make. The book is written from the point of view of Arthur, a 16 year old privileged suburban youth whose most meaningful human relationships develop only after he is transformed into a dog. Very appropriate even in the 90's, and a satisfying, not so tidy ending.
