I read this book (this is actually my third time reading it) and every time I read it I think of my grandson William. He too really wants a pet. I can't wait to find out how he likes the book.

Francie is a very determined little girl who really wants a dog. Her dad is a part-time teacher and her mom is in Africa working with elephant rehabilitation. Neither career really offers a whole lot of money and with Francie's mom overseas her dad doesn't feel like they have the time to give a pet. But one day a dog plays ball, with the San Francisco 49er's. Afterwards the dog is caught and is on the way to the pound. Francie talks to her dad and he agrees to foster the dog. They name the dog 'Scrimmy'. Scrimmy is a pack dog who wants to stay with Francie and her dad and manages to get out of the house multiple times. Francie's teacher is very understanding, their principal less so and gives Scrimmy and family an ultimatum - Scrimmy stays away from school or else!

Needless to say Francie and her dad find away to keep Scrimmy and Francie finally gets a "forever" dog. If you have a child who loves pets they'll enjoy this story. ( )
