    "I fell deeply in love with this book as a child and in love with Wilbur and Charlotte and may be even Templeton (a little.) It is beautifully and simply written. You don't notice the efforts of the writer at all. It's simply an exquisite narrative that has held up beautifully and should be on every child's reading list."

    "This was my very first book I read of W. Bruce Cameron. It's one of my favorite books and I loved it. I have read it many times and I have also recommend this book. It's one of my favorite books. It's very heartwarming and such a wonderful story and book. It will make you cry and its very hard to put down once you open it up. It really makes you think so much about your dogs and others you have known."

    "Overall this is a really good example of the book. It explains that it is about family and gives a very brief description about what the family goes through in this story."
