King's people have disappeared, and a mean Uncle has abandoned King at the pound. Being a resourceful dog King comes up with a plan on finding his people, the only fly in the ointment? How to escape from the pound.....King's dilemma is solved when Connor and his Mom come and adopt him. His elation is short lived, when Connor disappears Buddy puts his search for his family on the back burner to find his new friend.
This is an engaging story, meant for a girl or boy from kindergarten to around third grade. This story would provide the start for both fun and serious conversations with kids when read together about strangers, divorce, moving, puppies, deductive reasoning and how people are defined by their smells (according to the dogs in the story). While touching on serious topics King’s or Buddy as his new family calls him, enthusiasm keeps the story from becoming to heavy for a young reader. I would recommend this for anyone looking for a fun chapter book for a young reader!
