Editorial Reviews

Review

"5 Stars. Sometimes it's difficult to see the good in others, especially when the others look bigger and stronger. Differences can be frightening, but they don't have to be. Muffy was a small dog. Injured by...a bigger dog. Muffy decided that all big dogs were bad--and it was important to bark at them. Valor was a big dog. He lived far from Muffy. But one day he became lost and was hit by a car.... when Muffy's owners rescued Valor, Muffy felt compassion for the big dog.... Muffy learned a valuable lesson, that one cannot judge another by how they look, and one shouldn't let fear rule our feelings. Based on a true story, Karl Beckstrand's picture book...recounts a memory of a much loved childhood pet. The lessons that Muffy had to learn are ones that we all have to learn.... Beautifully presented for young readers to...enjoy...to learn from.... bright, colorful illustrations...a heartwarming story for young readers. The plot is simple and the messages quite clear: ...be compassionate, be courageous." Jane Hills Orford for Readers' Favorite
