Friar Tuck, a big golden Labrador, is young Helen's inseparable companion. She still remembers the sunny day three years ago when her father dumped the fat, wriggling puppy into her surprised arms and said, All yours, Helen. Since then, her dog has grown into a wonderful friend for the lanky, red-haired girl.

No one knows exactly when Tuck began to go blind. By the time Helen and her parents notice the symptoms, the dog is knocking over chairs and can no longer chase squirrels. Afraid that Tuck is doomed to a life of being tied up, Helen desperately looks for a way to let her frisky dog keep the freedom he has always known. Where can she find the help Tuck needs?

Award-winning author Theodore Taylor began his writing career as a cub reporter when he was 13. Working his way from a Portsmouth, Virginia newspaper to newsrooms in Washington, D.C. and New York City, he was an NBC network sportswriter by the time he was 19. His popular books for young listeners include Timothy of the Cay and The Hostage. You'll also enjoy the exciting sequel to Tuck's adventures in Tuck Triumphant.

    " This book was on my list for our Battle of the Books competition. I don't usually like stories about dogs. But this was more about a girl never giving up and gaining confidence. For me, it was a quick read. It could be a great read for some of my struggling 5th graders. "

    " I ADORED this book as a kid. Helen's determination, not to mention the caring support she gets from the adults in her life, made this a book I read and reread until the book was in tatters. I would love to find a copy for my daughter when she's old enough. "

    " Best things in my childhood were reading, riding my bike, eating fishballs, Barbie dolls, and having a dog. I got to read this book as a child, and to this day, I would still remember it. It's very, very touching. It has the elements that make a great story and gives a valuable lesson too. "
