Zoe and her sister Alice live in the country with their veterinarian father and their mother who fosters abandoned Great Pyrenees dogs. When nine-year-old Phillip moves next door Zoe discovers he will only speak to their dog Kodi. Zoe’s chatty, compassionate family contrasts with Phillip’s dour relatives. Tension mounts when Phillip disappears during a hailstorm to chase a dog he loves. Zoe narrates this quietly moving story of the healing power of dogs and caring families. Another winner from Newbery Medalist Patricia MacLachlan (Sarah, Plain and Tall, 1985) Ages 8-10
