I brought this book home with an agenda. I want to get my seven year old interested in writing haiku. He already loves books of poetry about dogs (despite not liking dogs that much), so I figured he'd be a sucker for this one. It's only been a couple of days and I haven't caught him writing any haiku yet, but he was absolutely spellbound while I was reading the book. It's the classic "stray dog finds a home" tale, with a cute mutt drawn so well by Bowers, you almost want to pet him. Clements has a short, encouraging author's note in the back explaining haiku for kids who want to try it out.
Precious and fun. A whole book with a haiku on each page plus great illustrations. I probably enjoyed this more than my kid did.
Kids weren't enthused but we adults liked it.
Really cute book about a mutt who gets adopted by a family.
