My Take on the Book
This was a fun loving book for any family. Based on a real11 year old Freddie (that's very old). Wonderfully illustrated by Bruce Hammond, this story pulls you in and keeps you reading to find out what is next. I think that every dog has some type of naughty bone whether small or large, but this book shows you that in the end, the dog truly has a heart of gold.

My girls love dogs (though we are a cat family, and this book was one that they have completely enjoyed listening to and I know that your kids will as well!
