Very small children and pets have a lot in common but the most frustrating similarity is that neither has the language to describe what they want. Older children don’t tend care all that much about babies and their wordless states, but the fact that pets can’t communicate their needs is a very real concern for them. Lucy Rescued taps into that worry and the result is a lovely tale that shows that sometimes the easiest solution to a problem is the one thought up by a kid. A good pet book and a good kid book, this is one story that doesn’t have any difficulty with its ability to relate.

ELIZABETH RAMSEY BIRD Feb 12, 2012

A little girl and her parents adopt Lucy the dog from the pound. All seems to be well until the pup begins to howl. And howl. And howl some more. Various solutions are suggested and tried. Perhaps Lucy is lonely for other dogs? A mirror doesn’t work. Maybe she would like her own doggie bed? One is purchased and summarily rejected. Doggie therapy? Ha! When our heroine’s parents lay down the law and say that Lucy needs to quiet down or she’s going back to the pound, that’s when things get real. Fortunately the little girl has an idea. Offering Lucy one of her stuffed animals she successfully determines that this was the answer to everyone’s prayers. After that Lucy is given a range of stuffed friends. She’s perfectly content at that point, but woe betide you if one happens to go missing.
