I’m not the biggest fan of pet books in general, but this one takes a fresh spin on it. The main character finds (and immediately loves) a dog wearing shoes–which means it must be a dog that someone else loved first. The story was upbeat, thoughtful, and interesting. I particularly enjoyed the illustrations–black and white, with only select pops of color.
