Reviews

"MacLachlan spins from simple words an enigmatic, gentle . . . tale. Sweetly magical." - Kirkus Reviews "A charmed (and charming) dog, a language-loving girl, and an innate aunt-niece bond are among the alluring threads that MacLachlan (Dream Within a Dream) deftly weaves into this taut novel. MacLachlan again proves her gift for shaping endearing and credible characters-even a magical canine-in this bright yet reflective story." - Publishers Weekly "Newbery-winner MacLachlan's spare but elegant prose touches on themes of self-confidence, the writer's craft, and the sense of well-being that can come from pet ownership. This book will please younger readers and inspire would-be wordsmiths." - Booklist
