We don’t like to give away endings to books at the library, but sometimes, a particularly sad book is worth a warning to people–especially if we know those patrons have gone through a bad time, or if it is a child who might not react well to an animal’s death in the story.
So, when I came across this post about books re-imagined where the dog doesn’t die, I thought it was worth a quick read–and a chuckle. Keep in mind, these books haven’t been re-written, just summarized in a new way that avoids the sadness. If you’d like to see if your favourite book is here, click here.
Lassie, you don’t have to worry about Timmy falling down any wells here, either.
