Staff Review: "The Poet's Dog"
Trapped in a bitter blizzard, two children, Flora and Nickel, are led to a safe, warm cabin by a dog named Teddy who speaks in a language they immediately understand. They find food and firewood to make a fire and share life stories while they plan how they can get word to the childrens' mother. Teddy knows instinctively how to rescue them, just like he was rescued by a man who was a poet and gave him the gift of words. Written in Newbery award-winning author Patricia MacLauchlan’s characteristic concise, spare word style, this poignant story of love and loss will touch everyone’s heart, but especially pet lovers of all ages.check it out more reviews
