Description
A young boy tries to find his voice with the help of some four-legged friends in this novel from the Newbery-winning author of "Sarah, Plain and Tall."
Zoe's family rescues dogs in need. There is always the sweet smell of dog and a warm body looking to cuddle or play. There is always a new dog to be saved and loved. Fur flies everywhere. It covers everything. Zoe's house is never silent.
But the house across the street is always silent these days. A new family has moved in and Phillip, the boy, has stopped speaking. He doesn t even want to try.
Zoe knows that saving dogs and saving boys are different jobs, but she learns that some parts are the same. Both take attention and care, understanding and time. And maybe just a bit of white fur flying.
From Newbery Medalist Patricia MacLachlan, "White Fur Flying "is an endearing tale of companionship and hope.
