Praise For…

"Written at a level somewhere between an easy reader and a beginning chapter book, this sly, silly book has flashes of humor that an adult might appreciate best. Still, any kid who owns a dog will recognize his or her lovable pet in these three short stories ostensibly told to the mutt himself. All the stories feature the same goofy-looking dog. The first vignette spoofs how dogs go crazy barking every time someone knocks at the door. In the second, the dog buries a bone and then goes crazy, digging dozens of holes trying, without success, to find it. Finally, it settles for a dog biscuit: "You ate up the biscuit. You felt nice and full. You forgot all about the bone." In the third story, the dog turns into "Wild Dog," chasing cars and squirrels with equal success--none. The watercolor art is clever and full of vigor, bringing to life those slobbering, sweet animals that are totally dog." Booklist, ALA

"Humans will find these selections entertaining even without a hound present -- but it's always nice to share." Publishers Weekly

Once upon a time there was a storyteller, whose stories existed in the land of many lakes – that boundless region called Minnesota, where hardy souls have made their living on the water, fertile land and in cities. This storyteller, William Kent Krueger, weaves his stories with characters so rich, so real and so human, the tale leaps off the page and buries deep into your soul. “This Tender Land” is simply a magnificent example of Krueger’s extraordinary gift as a writer. You will find it hard to put down, or even after finishing, hard to stop thinking of Odie, Albert, Mose and Emmy – your guides down the winding rivers in this book. Truly, a masterpiece. - review by Maureen
