by | Read by Brian Butler

Children Ages 6+ • 3.75 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2006

Brian Butler's distinctive baritone and sure, fully voiced performance enhance the story of brothers John and Tom and their dog, Mouse. After Tom is diagnosed with a life-threatening illness, the family decides that "Mouse must go." John takes a secret journey to find the dog a new home. Butler's vocal characterizations infuse the story with good pacing and inflection. He is especially good at giving comic tones to the eccentric characters that John and Mouse meet, including new friends, charlatans, gypsies, and a long-lost uncle. The title A DOG FOR LIFE is layered with meaning as Mouse and John demonstrate love, strength, and courage in a work that is part fantasy, part adventure story.
