    Story

    In the best-selling tradition of Rescuing Sprite comes the story of a puppy brought back from the brink of death, and the family he adopted. Heartwarming and redemptive, Oogy is the story of the people who were determined to rescue this dog against all odds, and of the family who took him home, named him "Oogy" (an affectionate derivative of ugly), and made him one of their own.

    Would you consider the audio edition of Oogy to be better than the print version?

    Yes, at the time I listened to this we were traveling and it was so relaxing to ride alongand look at the scenery and listen to a good story.


    What other book might you compare Oogy to and why?

    I also listened to Huck and not that it was sad just that it was a great animal story.


    Have you listened to any of Joe Barrett’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    no, I havev't


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Oogy was but not Huck


    Any additional comments?

    Nothing more than I love animal stories.

    Story

    Michael was four when his relentless campaign for a dog began. His parents, Janet and Rich, were steadfast; bringing a dog into their fast-paced New York City lives was utterly impractical. On Thanksgiving weekend, however, Huck, a sweet, mischievous toy poodle, joins the family and wins everyone's hearts.... A few months later, the family ventures to baseball's spring training, leaving Huck with Janet's sister in Ramsey, New Jersey. Barely 24 hours into the trip, Janet receives the dreaded phone call: Huck has slipped through the backyard fence and run away.

    Venida says: "I love animal stories, especially dogs."

    What made the experience of listening to Huck the most enjoyable?

    We were traveling early in the morning before it was light, and this passes the time quickly.


    What other book might you compare Huck to and why?

    Oogy


    Which character – as performed by Karen White – was your favorite?

    The son who was always begging for a dog.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    No, I will finish listening to Huck, on our Christmas trip, tomorrow.


    Any additional comments?

    I love to put books on my MP3 for traveling or listening late at night when I can't sleep.
