An undiscovered classic concerning the life, times and travels of a canine gentleman adventurer and transcendentalist.  What a beautiful, wise, fierce, life-loving book this is! Like the Pooh books, there's an astonishing amount of wisdom here.

This novel features some challenging vocabulary, but it’s a great read for 4th to 5th graders--perhaps even advanced 3rd grade readers.  And having read it twice, I can testify: adults also will adore it.
