Do you like dogs? Don’t miss Webster the Tale of an Outlaw by Ellen Emerson White. After two mean abusing families and three cold shelters, the dog has given up on people. He doesn’t need friends and he is not going to get too comfortable in this new shelter. Sure the food is good, the bed is soft and warm, and he isn’t chained up. They even gave him a name, Webster, but he prefers Bad Hat. Because he is big, bad and doesn’t need anyone. Jack the terrier and Florence the bossy cat are nice, but Bad Hat still makes his escape. But it doesn’t go the way he planned. The other animals from the shelter keep showing up and they end up helping folks (and kittens, Ack) This is ruining Bad Hat’s cool, tough, bad image. I recommend this delightful humorous and heartfelt book to readers in grades three to six and to dog lovers of all ages.
