Comments Mutt Dog!

  • Kathryn

    Five stars! Totally tugged on my heartstrings. Remarkable, given that it's such a "simple" story with few words but, gosh, they are so well-chosen and the illustrations are great. The opening page almost brought tears to my eyes. A poor little mutt wandering the streets of the big city with nowhere to go and no one to love him. Whaaahaaaa! It really brings out the loneliness of the dog, though he tries to make the best of it--and the indifference of the people. Of course, there is a wonderfully [...]

    This is a heartwarming tale of a stray dog who finds a home. The story is a simple one, and the watercolor illustrations do a wonderful job of telling the story in pictures. I loved the compassion of the woman who worked at the shelter (view spoiler)[who eventually adopted Mutt Dog (hide spoiler)] and I hope our girls learned a little more about the plight of homeless animals and the importance of giving a home to pets from animal shelters. Overall, we thought this book was a delightful story an [...]

    Wonderful, whimsical illustrations! There is a happy ending, of course. But, it’s sort of a sad dog story. While only the first 60% of the story has a melancholy feel, and the last 40% is aglow with cheer, sensitive children may find this book a painful experience. The long happy ending helps a lot though. I’m impressed by this author/illustrator and will be on the lookout for other work by him.

    I asked my niece to review this story after we read it. She gave it two thumbs up. She said that she really liked the story, and she liked the illustrations a lot. She said that she would suggest to other kids that they read this book.From an adult's point of view, this story provides many opportunities to talk to kids about a few social issues in a way that they can understand. My niece and nephew both independently made the connection that not only does Mutt Dog not have a home, but many of th [...]

    Nothing too special here, just a cute little story about a dog finding a home. The art is cute, especially the shaggy dog. But the style also feels naggingly familiar somehow, though I don't recognize any of the other works by this author. Probably just similar to some other artist.

  • Jennifer

    Makes a good read aloud with great illustrations for an elementary age crowd.

    Mutt Dog is a story about a homeless dog. He’s brave, fast, gentle and loyal. He’s also hungry and lonely. He ate whatever he could find and every night, he looked for a new place to sleep. One night, he found a shelter, filled with people who were cold and tired just like him. The dog became friends with a woman who worked for the shelter. She gave him a biscuit and a bed but the next day, she sent him away. In the midst of looking for a place to sleep with an empty stomach, the scruffy dog [...]

    King, S.M. (2004). Mutt dog. Florida: Harcourt Inc."Mutt Dog" by Stephen Michael King is such a wonderful children's book about a homeless stray dog. Everyday the stray dog scrounges for food, and looks for shelter. That is until one day he ends up at a real Homeless Shelter where a woman takes pity on the dog. She gives him a bed for the night and food. But, she explains there is no room for the poor dog because this shelter is for humans. The woman eventually decides to take the dog home with [...]

    Unlike most children's picture books that have children or animals with easily resolvable problems, Mutt Dog introduces children to the concept of homelessness. Told in very simple terms it shows Mutt Dog, who is alone and uncared for, as he finds a new family to love. I have mixed feelings about this book. On one hand, I applaud the book for it's social conscience and for introducing a difficult topic to young children. On the other hand, is it wrong to want to protect your children from the ug [...]

    Lesley: bigbooklittlebookWhat a lovely story. Can I even admit that it almost made me tear up… almost! This is a story about a stray dog, who had to be brave and fast and smart just to survive. We see him scrounging for food and trying to find places to sleep until he eventually finds a halfway house where someone takes pity on him and finds him somewhere warm and dry to sleep and gives him some food.This story has a very happy ending and just generally has a ‘feel good’ factor to it. It p [...]

  • Katrina Germein

    Stephen Michael King’s text is simple and beautiful, like the illustrations, which are somehow both funny & charming and moving & meaningful. For me, this book has just the right amount of Stephen Michael King’s trademark whimsy married with an important story and a clear narrative. The tale has a happy ending that leaves readers feeling great yet along the way readers are given the opportunity to consider deeper themes of belonging and kindness. The story acknowledges and normalises [...]

  • Heidi-Marie

    A definite book for animal lovers. It's nice when a story can turn out this well. But coming from a non-animal background, I would still worry about the background of an animal who can't tell us what that background is. (I'm thinking disease, etc.) I'm all for animals being treated kindly, and domestic ones being treated kindly. But I'm still hesitant about bringing ANY animal in my home. Not something I'm familiar with. Anyway. The book is good. And will be a nice filler in a storytime.4/15/15 [...]

    A lovely story about a dog living on the streets, scrounging for food and shelter each day. Along comes a woman who works at a shelter that helps people who are the same as Mutt Dog. Each day, they need food, warmth, shelter, and comfort, just like Mutt. She gives him a bed for the night, but sends him out the next day when she says there is no room for him. Eventually, her heart softens and she brings Mutt home to meet her family. They've fallen in love and now Mutt has a place to call his own. [...]

  • Camille

    The story of a homeless mutt dog roaming the city looking for something to eat and a place to sleep. Starts off rather sad, but end very sweetly.I like the ink-with-watercolor illustrations, but I wouldn't use them for a storytime because they're not clear enough to show an audience and there are also some small insets. But if a child wanted a nice beginning-reader-level picture book or a parent wanted to share a dog book with their kid, this is perfect.

  • Skye Kilaen

    This is a great little book about a dog, especially if you know anyone who has adopted a dog from a shelter or rescue. The dozen or more names they try out for the dog particularly crack me up. Radiator?! This isn't our first Stephen Michael King book, and now I know to look out for him. His work has a quiet sweetness that's so calming.

  • Tricia

    I'm wary of dog booksr the reason that Korman wrote "No More Dead Dogs". Of course, this is a picture book so it has a better chance of a happy ending. Illustrated in a way to draw the reader into the story, this book details a homeless dog's journey to a new family. My preschooler loved it so much that she wanted to read it again as soon as we finished.

  • Matthew

    This tale of a homeless dog in the big city offers readers a reminder of the harshness of life for the homeless as well as a glimpse of hope for the dog who manages to escape this difficult life thanks to the kindness of a volunteer at a halfway house.

  • Peacegal

    This surprisingly sensitive picture book explores both animal and human homelessness with dignity and grace. It could potentially spark a lot of good discussions about homelessness, shelters, and helping both people and animals.

  • Vanda

    my little brother got this book from the school library and he loved it. As a 20 year old I loved it as well and the illustrations are adorable pls

  • Beth

    A homeless, yet resourceful dog always manages to find a place to sleep for the night, but today's find just might have led him to his forever home.

  • T

    Great story and illustrations

  • Heather Gunnell

    A sweet, heartwarming story about a stray dog finding his forever home.

  • Sandra

    I loved reading this book to my chhildren

  • Marissa Burkey

    Cute book about a stray dog being adopted

  • Konnie

    This is an adorable and enlightening book that had the K5 children at my school "awing" all the way through

  • Jane Humane

    This is a precious tale that illustrates both compassion for homeless animals and mutts. I didn't like that the characters named him Mutt-Dog after he was adopted but overall a great story.

  • KarenMLISt

    For anyone who has ever adopted/rescued a mutt dog, this book hits home. For anyone who hasn't, this book will warm your heart anyway! Wonderful illustrations! Wonderful read aloud!

  • Briana

    Homelessness, for animals and humans, is a key theme in this book. It made me sad. Then it made me happy. Adoption is a beautiful thing. Rescue a pet today! Or a human. ;D
