It's entertaining, funny, educational and inspiring.
Maggie McGordon
Rugby's story shows us that any being can overcome obstacles - it's not a specific 'human' trait.
Deborah Mahler
This book has proven to be engaging for the 1-4 grade population.

My son and I have been waiting for a book like this. My son has autism and can't stay interested in a story for very long but this one is different. It's entertaining, funny, educational and inspiring. Told from a dog's mouth, it offers the importance of taking pride in who you are no matter what happens to you in your life. This book, which is filled with wonderful pictures of horses, dogs,cats, foxes and raccoons is so uplifting. The hero is Rugby Jones and although he ended up in a wheelchair, he demonstrates how wonderful life can be if you just have the right attitude. I will be purchasing this book for my nieces and nephews for Christmas.

A Welsh Corgi Role Model! What a delight!

Rugby Jones shows us what it is like to be different - and that being different is okay. In his own irascible style, Rugby introduces us to his family and friends, talks about his injuries, his feelings, and his determination. There are scores of pictures that illustrate the story and really make it more than just a story, but of a shared journey with friends you get to know and love.

All kids - and kids of all ages - have a hero in Rugby Jones.

The Tail of Rugby Jones is very touching story that will appeal to all age groups. It's a story of an amazing little dog that faces adversity and overcomes it with its tail wagging.
The book is a quick read, and well worth your time. I would encourage everyone to read this book. We all face life's challenges, and this book will make you smile while providing strength and encouragement.
