People may drift apart, but love can hold them together. A touching tale of pets and family told in the "venerable spare and moving style" of Newbery Medalist Patricia MacLachlan, author of Sarah, Plain and Tall "(Booklist").
When William's father leaves, his mother promptly goes out and adds four dogs and a cat to their lives. William's sure that nothing can fill the hole left by his father, but the new additions to the family are determined to help. With his sister, Elinor, and his mother, William will learn that "family" can come in all shapes and sizes, because sometimes we find love through magic, and sometimes that magic is all around us.
