Any additional comments?

I had never heard of a Great Pyrenees before Angel. They are extraordinary animals and are very large. They tend to be timid until they get to know you and trust you. This is a wonderful tale of the transformation of Angel from a timid and frightened animal to a loving and thoroughly domesticated member of the family. She is a huge and wonderful companion. This is beautifully written. Ms. Moore is a shining light. I can't wait to hear more of her work. I have become an avid fan of Ms. Moore.

Lovable shaggy dog!

LaVonna Moore does a great job of helping us into Angel's head. Moore keeps Angel's needs and wants very basic which both makes it easy for kids to relate to and also somewhat realistic as dog wants/needs are probably not going to be complex and subtle. There are a number of instances in which Angel knows things a dog could not know, but the bulk of the time it is within the acceptable range of anthropomorphic children's literature. Some of the sentences are a bit choppy.

The story is simple but not so overly simple as to insult a young child's intelligence or attention span.

Ms. Rathborne's narration is wonderful. I have heard clips of her doing readings from classic literature as well as excerpts from a mystery novel so I knew she was a talented voice actress but was not sure how well she would make the transition to children's literature. But she did a fabulous job of bringing the eponymous doggy to life.

Disclosure: I am an avid follower of Ms. Rathborne's blog and got a free copy of the book in exchange for an honest review,
