Paulsen, a frequent Newbery winner, traces a path to redemption through art and dogs. Three unique young people are featured in these gripping novellas. Jake is in thrall to the work of a sculptor he views through a window across from the tenement he lives in. Jamie sketches dogs but is too poor to own one. Jo lives with abusive parents in a trailer and has a small pack of adopted strays as friends. It seems clear that art and dogs have been moving forces in Paulsen's own life, and the skillful narrators pick up on his passion. It's hard not to love one story more than the others, but that will be a small burden for each listener to bear. M.M.C. © AudioFile 2012, Portland, Maine [Published: APRIL 2012]
