Some dogs change everything.
Mr Mosely isn’t a pedigreed dog, but he is just the dog Corey and his family want: he is loyal, protective and loving. And he is much more than that. He might well be the one thing that holds them all together.
What a beautiful story: one of those that is hard to put down. This is the sort of book you will laugh at even when you’re crying on the inside.(Ballarat Courier)
I always find outstanding books to be very hard to write about. How can a review convey the way a book grabs your heart and makes you cry and think about the world and the way it operates? Just a Dog should be on every library shelf. It is a book to read aloud to children, to recommend to individuals and to have as a class set. But be sure you have a box of tissues handy! Highly recommended.(Read Plus)
This is a story about what makes a family: love, trust, rituals and patience. Mr Mosely is clearly more than ‘just a dog’. he is one that we won’t forget. (CBCA Judges report)
