    "it is very amusing and humorously intricate story developed by Gene Zion in his own era which still pertains to the norms of today's generation. Harry the little dog perseveres in his ambition no matter what until all options are exhausted just to get that Lady to stop singing. This character I think can bring the sense of never giving up in children. It may make children be resilient in their pursuit no matter what obstacles are there. It is recommended to children both from sense of humor, adventure and being determined in your ambitions"
