From School Library Journal:

Grade 1-3-- A girl and her younger sister cannot seem to find a way to interest their parents in a dog; however, when they take care of an old black Labrador retriever for a hospitalized neighbor, the situation slowly changes. As part of a series "for children who are just beginning to enjoy reading," the text is slightly more difficult than many beginning reading books, and a little easier than most chapter books. The book contains line drawings on every page that provide encouragement to readers who need it and a theme that is dear to the hearts of many. This good-humored story of not-so-gentle persuasion will be familiar to all who have ever dedicated themselves to a wish for a long time. --Carolyn Jenks, Oyster River Elementary School, Durham, NH
