»Was kann man von einem großen Hund lernen? Eine Menge. Über Mut und Mitgefühl, Liebenswürdigkeit und Lebenslust.« Dies ist die Geschichte einer Hündin, die nicht nur liebend gern Schuhe zerkaut und die Polizei in Alarmbereitschaft versetzt, wenn sie sich einsam fühlt, sondern ihrem Herrchen dazu verhilft, seinen Traum Wirklichkeit werden zu lassen. Es ist eine verrückte, aber wahre Geschichte, nicht zuletzt auch über das Wesen der Freundschaft. (Dieser Text bezieht sich auf eine frühere Ausgabe.)

About the Novel: This is a story in which a ten-year-old girl must face the abandonment of her mother, and find the answer to the question “Will she ever come back?” The answer, surprisingly, is “No!”, but India Opal Buloni, over the course of the novel, learns to deal with this answer through her experiences and support of a growing circle of friends, all of whom has also suffered some kind of loss themselves. And finally, it is the story of the love between a girl and her dog; a pet that has an uncanny ability to bring kindred spirits together.
