Smart Dog - An Awesome Book

I don't know how many times I have read "Smart Dog" by Vivian Vande Velde.  I've read it way too many times to count.  In this book, Amy meets a dog, Sherlock, who can talk.  Because the university is trying to kill Sherlock, the dog comes to Amy for help.  It's very difficult to keep things secret, but Amy is determined to help out Sherlock who becomes her very good friend.

Throughout the story, Amy learns many lessons about friends and helping others out.  What I really like about the book, though, is that it's really funny. The author makes the simplest conversations sound funny and realistic at the same time.  I often find myself laughing out loud while I read the book, even if I've already read it many times before.

Whether you enjoy reading books about animals or not, I'm sure you'll love this book.  I don't even like dogs, but I love "Smart Dog."  Full of suspense and humor, this book deserves your attention.
