I do not know why but I like this book a lot!

I loved the part where They found out that the dog they were adopting was named Henry like the other dog that they pretended was real. ( )

Book Links, March 2007, page 48:

"In this charming book accompanied by black-and white illustrations, Janie can barely recall the harlequin Great Dane her faimly owned, but she is sure that she would like another. Mystery and the power of wishful thinking combine for a brisk, refreshing story."

What a delightful little book. And just what I've always believed. It all works out in the end.
