Summary

Logan is moving from the farm to the city. He'll miss all the things he's leaving behind, but at least he has Bear. He loves Bear more than anything else in the world--because Bear is his dog.

Hannah lives in the city. What she wants, more than anything else in the world, is a dog of her own.

At the Rainbow Street Shelter, Logan and Hannah find a talking parrot, an old black Labrador, a three-legged goat, a puppy that looks like a peanut--and a surprise that just might be the best thing in the world.

Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "Logan is upset about his parents' divorce and unhappy about moving from their farm to the city. Worse, on the long drive to his new home, his dog is lost. In a parallel story, Hannah is disappointed when her parents won't let her keep the border collie that has stowed away in her Dad's pickup truck. Still, she gains their permission to volunteer at the animal shelter where they have taken him. The two story threads converge in the satisfying ending. An Australian writer, Orr has a way with words and dialogue that brings this story to life. The book is well designed for readers moving up to chapter books, with its short sentences, well-spaced lines of type, and attractive illustrations. Expressing emotions through subtle physical cues, Boase's shaded pencil drawings depict both people and dogs with grace and sensitivity. A promising start for the Rainbow Street Shelter series.--Phelan, Carolyn Copyright 2010 Booklist"
