Faith and the Electric Dogs Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Because Faith hates her new life in Mexico, she and her faithful mutt, Edison, flee by rocket and find adventures which cause her to have a change of heart.

Review:

"Reveling in the fantastical high jinks, readers will also absorb tidbits of Spanish and Indian language, Mexican culture and geography." Publishers Weekly

Review:

"The tale is narrated by Edison, who speaks Bowwow, English, Spanish and a little Tzotzil. He sprinkles the text with many Spanish words, which are translated in the margins and in a glossary. This foray into magical realism will be appreciated by anyone who has ever felt like an outsider." Children's Literature

Review:

"Although the happy ending may be tied together a little too neatly with coincidental plot twists, this fast-paced story is imaginative and full of fun." School Library Journal

Review:

"The design of the book includes Jennings's chapter decorations in black-and-white and translations in the wide margins for the many Spanish words (and French and Bowwow—whatever comes up) effortlessly introduced into the story. A great read-aloud, y un libro perfecto!" Kirkus Reviews

About the Author

Jennings grew up in Crown Point, Indiana, and central Arizona. After graduating from Arizona State University, he relocated to San Francisco, where he taught English as a Second Language.
