Reviews compare this charming and darkly humorous novel to A Man Called Ove and The Art of Racing in the Rain and I couldn't agree more! I enjoyed the audio version, told in the voice of Tassen, a Greenland Dog.
When his owner, the Major, passes away, Tassen is left with his widow, Mrs. Thorkildsen. Mrs. T, a retired librarian, fills her time, emboldened by her daily consumption of "dragon water," with study of Roald Admundsen's ill-fated trek to the South Pole, accompanied by his amazing team of sled dogs. I think I was just as interested in Admundsen's catastrophe plagued trek as I was with Mrs. T's story,
The dialogue is spot on and the writing (a translation) is so clever.

Yet another fascinating account of the closest Americans have to a royal family.
Chapters include glimpses into the lives of all the male Kennedy’s from Joe, Sr. down to JFK, Jr.

They say the family is both charmed and cursed. This book shows that and more.

The new History Comics books are great for comic lovers or those reluctant young readers in your life. They cover historical events but are accessible and high interest by using the comic format. It may help your young reader get interested in history or other nonfiction topics, too.
This title in particular was very informative about the Great Chicago Fire and interwove a fictional story with the true history. I enjoyed it and thought the artwork was engaging.

Pearl the dog and her best friend, Squirrel, are enjoying Thanksgiving by pointing out all the things they are thankful for: fun games, yummy treats, and a cuddly nap spot in the park. When things turn cold and shivery it is harder to be thankful.
But wait! Their hospitable friend Stan finds them and gives this sweet story a very happy ending.
