    Todd, the youngest of four children, has a developmental disability that keeps him at home on the farm with his mother and father. One special holiday season, Todd hears an ad on the radio from a shelter looking for temporary homes for their dogs during the holiday week. When Todd's parents at last give in to his pleas for this charitable cause, the family is faced with an entire shelter full of dogs needing homes.

    Gary L. Parks says: "If you love dogs, Christmas and Wisdom..."
    "What Christmas and family are all about..."
    Overall

    I loved this book so much I went out and bought copies of it for my family! The story was heartwarming, funny and sad in places; well worth the three and half hours of listening time required.

    It's just townspeople picking numbers for the annual lottery...why, then, is there an ominous feeling to "The Lottery"? Find out, and listen to 7 other unique stories. The collection reveals Jackson's remarkable range, from hilarious to horrible, dealing with modern issues of alienation, empowerment, racism, and economic class. The stories are "The Lottery," "Flower Garden," "Come Dance with Me in Ireland," "Men with Their Big Shoes," "Trial by Combat," "Pillar of Salt," "Like Mother Used to Make," and "Colloquy."

    Kathy says: "What the heck?"
    "How depressing...."
    Overall

    I agree with Kathy. Jackson was such a brilliant writer and this so-called recording is so very bad! Let's hope that Audible offers one in the near future worthy of Jackson's stories!!
