"Gary Paulsen is a consummate storyteller, so who better to narrate his chronicles of his best sled dog, Cookie? In seven chapters, Paulsen swings emotionally from one topic to another--worry over Cookie's last litter, the happiness of warm puppies, the exhilaration and fears of sled racing, and the simple comfort his best friend brings when it's time to hang up the harnesses. In his voice one hears delight at the puppies' antics and grief when he describes Cookie's final days. These observations of a canine companion express universal truths of life, love, and death. Be prepared to laugh and cry. M.M.O. Winner of AudioFile Earphones Award (c) AudioFile 2011, Portland, Maine"
