What a warm and lovely book! It made me nostalgic for a place and time I had never even been. While the dog, Skip, is amazing, the childhood of Willie Morris is common to many people who grew up in small towns in the 1940's - definitely a bygone era. You don't even have to love dogs to enjoy this book, but it would help!
A heartwarming memoir about a boy and his beloved dog. It's an easy read that shows life during the days of World War II. Morris captures life in a small Mississippi town without making it boring or overly sweet.
