Once again, as in Elizabeth Catcher a Fish (1977), Jane Rush Thomas invests a youngish child-here, nine-year-old Daniel-with real and satisfying skills, and writes a graceful, evocative prose that bears one along on sheer sensory images. The plot is relatively commonplace; but not prosaic. Daniel's beloved dog Captain has just died when he finds another dog nearly starved to death in a culvert. Rejecting the vet's warning that the newcomer may not live, Daniel nun,s her back to something like health.

I purchased this book for my grandchildren. When my son was little he requested this
book be read to him at bedtime often. Heartwarming, precious story. Other reviews relay details in the book, so I won't
repeat those. Comeback Dog is one of my favorite children's books, I never tire
of reading it to little ones.

All of the children's books that l review are ones l used year after year to read aloud in my classroom. You can tell a truly wonderful children's book by their level of attention as you read and the story line developes. This is another little k.own winner that appealed to boys and girls alike, from 8 to 12. Both the boy and the stray had wounds only the other could tend.

A convincing story of boy meets dog.

I really liked the books altho the spongebob books werent what I expected, they were suppose to be for an 11 year old, but at any cost my 6 year old ended up getting them. Other than that I was very happy with the products.

This book was recommended to me by some 5th grade students, but I thought it was terrible!. I would not waste my money on it if I were you.

This small book was first published in 1981 and has gone through several publications and printings since that date. It is a rather short story and is targeted toward the 9-12 age groups although in many ways most 12 year olds may find the reading less than challenging.

This is the story of a small boy who lives on a farm in the upper mid-west. They have just lost the family dog, Captain who was fourteen when he passed on, which made him about five years older than the little boy in the story; he was the only dog the lad had ever known. Needless to day, the young man was having difficulties accepting the loss of his dog. He states very emphatically that he never wants another dog!

Shortly after this, as chance would have it, the young boy finds a very bedraggled dog hiding in the culvert on their farm. The dog is near death from starvation and has obviously been abused. Daniel, the young boy, nurses her (He names her Lady) back to health. Lady is a very nice looking English setter, but having been very badly treated (We never really find out what her background is), she has trouble accepting Daniel's friendship and has problems trusting Daniel, and humans in general.

Even though this is a rather short little books we find quite a number of very good lessons; hard lessons to be truthful, woven into the pages. Daniel has a lot of maturing and growing up to do. Will the dog be able to touch Daniel's life as he has touched hers? Can Lady replace Captain...should Lady replace the old dog? Are Daniel's expectations too high; are they realistic? The reader shall see.

The story moves along quite well. This author is a very descriptive writer and pays very close attention to details. Not only do we get a snapshot of a young man maturing and learning life lessons, we also get a good look at farm life and family dynamics.

This is a pretty easy read with a vocabulary which will challenge just enough to make it useful and the story flows fast enough to keep in quite interesting all the way until the end. I've read this work to several of the kids I work with and it has been very well accepted.

The black and white pencil drawings found throughout the book enhance the story very nicely.

*spoiler alert*

This book is about family who lives on a farm and had a dog, named Captain. After their dog died their son Daniel rescues a starving dog from a tunnel who they name Lady. Daniel nurses her back to health and when she gets healthy she snarls at him which hurts his feelings. One day they took a walk together and he let her go off into the woods because he was mad. Afterwards he felt bad and worried about her. He stayed up at night and kept looking out the window for her to come back. Towards the end Lady came back and Daniel was happy.

The part of the book I did not like was when Daniel put a choke chain on Lady.
Do you like books that make you feel happy and sad at the same time?? If so then this book is great for you. It is about a boy whose dog that dies and he finds a new dog that is about to die. He cares for the dog and feeds it until it is healthy. Then one day something happens to the dog and the boy is very worried. What happened to the dog? If you want to know then read the book.
