Straight out of Juvie

 

You just might be charmed by this book! Even adults find it fun.


Buster's a therapy dog who needs to take matters into his own paws to help a boy understand his own anxiety even if it means breaking a few rules.


Buster's in big trouble. He's been dragged to Dog Court for breaking one of the most sacred of all dog rules: Never, ever talk to a human, or let a human know how smart you really are.

But he swears he had a good reason! The boy he's been taking care of, Tonio, needed his help in a big way. You see, Tonio is afraid all the time -- afraid of saying or doing the wrong thing, afraid of making a fool of himself or (even worse) hurting someone else's feelings. His doctor thinks having a therapy dog will help his anxiety -- and Buster wants to help. He really wants to help. Even if it means breaking the rules.

  2. I love the premise of this book, and I'm not even a dog person! The idea of a talking animal helping someone through what sounds like near-crippling anxiety is compelling and heartwarming. There should be more stories like this.
