Review

Imagine the stories that dogs could tell us if they couldtalk. A Place to Call Home: Toby's Tale by G.A. Whitmore allows us a lookinside the mind of a rescue dog named Toby. By alternating the storybetween Toby's point of view and the human point of view, G.A. Whitmore helpsus to understand how each thing that we do is seen and interpreted by our pets.Through the eyes of Toby, we are drawn to a deep emotional attachment to theinnocent world that is seen through the eyes of a puppy and a dog. Simple yet profound, tragic but triumphant. . . - Bil Howard for Readers' Favorite

Anyone, not just dog lovers, will definitely love this storyand be truly inspired by it. The faultless writing style and great flow of thestory makes it easy to finish the book in one sitting. Despite the sadnessregarding some animal deaths and tragedy, I enjoyed it and I think it would bea great gift for young teen readers. They can learn valuable lessons in how totreat animals humanely from Toby's story. All things considered, this anexcellent work from G.A. Whitmore. - Lit Amri for Readers' Favorite

Themany twists in Toby's story gripped my heart and caused me to shed more than afew tears, but also kept me filled with hope that he would eventually find hisforever home. In a great read for young and old alike, Ms. Whitmore takesreaders on an emotional journey with A Place To Call Home: Toby's Tale. Anyonewho enjoys reading animal rescue stories will find this a must-read, but reallythere is much more to this story than that. Truly a story that grabs the heartand won't let go! - Brenda Casto forReaders' Favorite
