    "This is a book centered around people with pets, I feel like this is more about the pet owners than centered on the dogs so I will give this an okay rating for the topic."

    "Saving Audie is a wonderful continuation for the Vick pit bulls who survived their living hell and have found their one true family. This book is for younger children with the fantastic photographs and story, BUT everyone should read this about Audie! I had an adult friend read it and she just kept saying wow, with a smile on her face! A great nonfiction title I plan to use in my library for the students who love dogs and the life skills kids. I heard about this book at the Philadelphia ISTE conference---keep spreading the good word about these resilient dogs that just want owners who love them. Lots of great facts, visit the blog too!"

    "Skip this one. It’s not as much about dogs as it is about the right-wing political views of a radio show host. The book is short, is full of political bias, and not very well written. I am a sucker for any book with a dog on the cover but this one will make me think twice before I am drawn in by any more cute puppy dog eyes."

    "It's cute, and I got it for a friend who is Corgy-Crazy. It's not huge or deep, but what do you expect from someone that gives a "voice" to their dogs? I think a ten year old could do better, but my friend really liked it, so that's all that really matters in the end."
