5.0

This story about big dreams, real childhood struggles and the love of a dog (this part I can’t relate to…) is made that much better by the fact that it’s a true story… so you feel like you’re learning something factual you can keep with you! The illustrations are awesome (love the note from Charles Schutz to the illustrator as a young man!) and give an error of dating that lends character to the story.
