Logan is moving from the farm to the city. He'll miss all the things he's leaving behind, but at least he has Bear. He loves Bear more than anything else in the world because Bear is his dog.

Hannah lives in the city. What she wants, more than anything else in the world, is a dog of her own.

At the Rainbow Street Shelter, Logan and Hannah find a talking parrot, an old black Labrador, a three-legged goat, a puppy that looks like a peanut and a Surprise that just might be the best thing in the world.

“The storytelling is crisp and clean, and the focus is squarely on the child-animal relationships, with a bit of family dynamics worked in.” --BCCB  "The book is well designed for readers moving up to chapter books, with its short sentences, wellspaced lines of type, and attractive illustrations." --Booklist “The tale of Logan’s efforts to locate his lost dog rings completely true…The believable plot and inherent suspense will keep readers turning the pages of this fine addition to early chapter books, which will resonate with both pet lovers and children involved in divorces.” --Kirkus Reviews
