Review: Frog Dog Summer, by Margaret Eleanor Leigh

This was an enjoyable book. I think many younger readers would enjoy this story of a dog who didn't seem to have a place in the world, but found a family who loved him. There's a bit of adventure, some good lessons, and the ending, while it might not sit well for every readers, was an interesting addition to a story about what having a pet truly means to a family.

I read this as audio, so I'd like to make a quick mention that the narration was done well for a book of this nature. I think it added to the experience to hear it read aloud.

A beautiful story

What made the experience of listening to Frog Dog Summer the most enjoyable?

A beautiful story, perceptive, funny, at times satirical, and yet also deeply moving, managing to unearth the things people care most about. Wonderfully written and performed. I see it is called "Animals of the Valley #1". I hope there are more to come.
