Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

What do you want so badly that you can taste it—and can you persuade someone to give it to you? That's the subject of a fourth-grade writing assignment. Calvin wants a dog! He reads what he's written to his mom to see just how persuasive he can be. No way, Mom says: Calvin is too irresponsible to care for a pet.  Luckily, Mom's boyfriend, Ledward, is on Calvin's side. He takes Calvin to a place he calls dog heaven. There Calvin meets the dog of his dreams—Streak. Now Calvin's got to convince Mom he's dog-responsible, because he and Streak belong together!

Synopsis:

Calvin wants a dog more than anything else in the world--but his mom won't let him get one. Her boyfriend takes Calvin to meet some dogs, and Calvin meets the dog of his dreams. Can he convince his mom to keep him? Illustrations.
