KIRKUS REVIEW

A happy ending that would have rung false in last year's The Accident is effected, after a proper interval, as a sequel. Christopher, still missing his dog Bodger who was killed by a truck, shows interest in the neighbors' new puppy--but none at all when his father, thus encouraged, takes him to the animal shelter to get a new one of his own. What follows is a bit artificial for the Carricks--Christopher discovers that the neighbors' puppy is really a stray, unwanted by the household he's been haunting, and thus a natural for adoption by Chris--but the pictures radiate harmonious conviction, and Christopher's audience will be as grateful as he is for the way things have worked out.
