She found Bandit at her school library a few weeks ago, and absolutely loved this sweet story.
Imagineer found time today out of her busy schedule to meet with me and answer a few questions about the book.
I’m guessing they were the impetus for her choosing Bandit, another dog story. I am definitely sensing a pattern in story lines that she enjoys. 🙂
Q. Describe this book in a few sentences
A. It was happy. It was nice. It was calm and it was a good book. It was about a dog named Bandit who finds a home, but he needs heart surgery. The owners couldn’t pay for it so they gave Bandit to a truck stop place. These kids adopted him, and they made money through dog walking services for the heart surgery. One of the kid’s uncles adopted him. Since he is a trucker, he gets lonely on the road, so Bandit is good company.
Q. Describe the main characters
A. The main characters are Bandit, a small shitzu, a girl and the girl’s friend. I forget their names. They are both really thoughtful and nice. The girl makes stuff kind of into a competition even when they’re not.
Q. What is your most favorite scene in the book?
A. My favorite scene was near the beginning when the woman comes out holding the shitzu and the girls love him and fall for him and become really attached to him in the thirty seconds that they first saw him.
Q. What was the worst scene in the book?
A. The worst scene was when the note next to Bandit said that he had to have heart surgery and they could not care for him. The note was from the previous owners.
Q. What did you learn from this book?
A. I learned from this book that if you want something, you can work for it, and then you can get it.
Q. Would you recommend this book to your friends?
A. Yes, especially the ones that love puppies.
Thank you so much to Imagineer for her review.
As a Mom, I have to say that I love her answer to what she learned from the book.
I love books that promote hard work, teamwork, thoughtfulness, and kindness.
This book sounds very heartwarming and the story earned high praises from Imagineer.
Once she picked this book up, she could not put it down.
