Quotes & Awards

  • “A beaut of brevity and pacing…Transitioning independent readers will enjoy getting to know the unnamed narrator and watching his attitude progress as Larry changes from ‘a used dog’ to ‘my dog.’ And they will definitely find themselves wishing for a Labracadabra of their very own.”

    " The boy's voice is not really that of an 1st grader, maybe more 3rd to 4th. But the story is only 35p long, so maybe it's for reluctant readers? And he's kinda a jerk...but the idea is fun: Does my dog have a magic tail?

    I didn't finish reading it out loud and my son's didn't care. "

    " Nice if not extraordinary little early novel for dog loving kids. Zach's new dog isn't exactly what he wanted in a dog. He may or may not have a "magical" tail. But after a few days with him, he is very much Zach's dog. "
