Loved it. Great story and characters. It has some bad language. "Lots of people like dogs and so do I. The boys reminded me of our neighbors. " I know how Opal feels - sad - because my Mom and Dad don'tlive together anymore." Favorite part: When the dog pulls down the sheriff's pants.
Wholesome family entertainment that demonstrates the positive differences that friendship can make in individuals, families, and communities. Emphasizes the values of generosity and individual uniqueness. Leaves you with a feeling of hope for the future. Contains profanity, rude insults, bathroom humor, and alcoholism. Portrayer of police as a bumbling southern idiot that is mocked and the landlord as the mean man it's ok to lie to were unnecessary and not part of the book.
A lonely girl adopts an orphaned dog who helps her make friends in the small town where she and her preacher father live. The two of them bring the community together, and in the process, are able to make peace over being abandoned by the girl's mother. Based on the boo by Kate DiCamillo.
