Synopses & Reviews

Review:

"Jones sees clearly and writes effectively and the girl-and-dog story is a sure, and never sticky, heart-tugger." Kirkus Reviews

Review:

"[A]mong the most rewarding novels available for readers of all ages." Publishers Weekly

Review:

"Diana Wynne Jones has the uncanny ability to make her fantasies real and believable....It need only be said that [Dogsbody] is more than welcome back into print — and may its own reincarnation find it many new readers." Children's Literature

Synopsis:

This quick-paced, evocative tale has already achieved cult status among fantasy fans.

Synopsis:

Sirius, immortal Lord of the Dog Star and infamous for his fiery temper, is outraged when he is falsely accused of murder and banished to Earth. There, he must live — and die — in the body of a dog unless he can retrieve a mysterious celestial weapon and thereby clear his name.

On Earth, Sirius is adopted by Kathleen, who has no idea that her beloved dog is anything more than an abandoned stray. With only dim memories of the star-world from which he has fallen, Sirius embarks on his mission. But his quest seems hopeless...until at last Sol, Moon, and Earth themselves come to his aid.

About the Author

She has been a compulsive storyteller for as long as she can remember enjoying most ardently those tales dealing with witches, hobgoblins, and the like.
