Boys, dogs and war,
This review is from: Letters From Wolfie (Hardcover)
Sherlock superbly captures and interweaves the emotions of three distinct themes. First, adolescence is confusing and crazy for a young boy, especially when he discovers girls. Second, there is no stronger adolescent bond than a boy and his dog. Third, war is tragic, hurting innocent victims far away from the battle front. Sherlock helps the reader feel the highs and lows of a young man experiencing his first dog, his first love, and his first war.
