The Dog, Ray, being a children's book, is very easy to read. The
story flows well, and it has a surprisingly fast pace for a
children's book. It has enough drama to get your heart racing, but
nothing that would greatly distress a young reader. The story is
touching, and you'll find yourself rooting for both pip and Daisy
to get their happy ending.
