A time gone by and excellently recalled by the author. Innocence, unconditional love staunchly upheld between a child and pet - no other relationship comes close.

This was an amazing book for me to read. I saw the movie and was intrigued, so I wanted to read the book. It is beautifully well-written, and I would love to know someone else gets to enjoy it.(:

Wonderful, sweet and lovable. This book exceeded my expectations and is one of my all-time favorites! (I know it's supposed to be a children's book, and my 6 & 7-year-olds loved it too) but it's just so endearing.
