Somehow I discovered this book in paperback when my (now) 30-year-old son was preschool age. I read the book to him, to his sister who is nine years younger, and to many children with whom I have worked in public school as a speech language pathologist. Finally I gave the well-worn book to my son because he is now a father. It's guaranteed to warm a child's heart. Sister Brute has no one to love until she gets an "ugly kicking dog" and a doll made from a stone. Then she discovers that there are other people to love.

I used to read this book to my son and to my nieces. Unfortunately, I can no longer find it (sigh!) This was such a sweet story: Sister Brute meets a dog in the woods who wears hard boots, kicks her and begs to be loved! Over time, Both Sister Brute, her Family and the kicking dog learn a lesson about Love. I would love to buy a copy of this book, but $30 for one book is out of my league.

Reprint this book! I remember it from childhood and would love to have copies for myself (my old copy is lost, naturally) and to give as gifts. Excellent story.

Please bring this bizarre yet lovable tale back! I loved it as a kid, and know my kids would too.
