KIRKUS REVIEW

When Dan moves into an apartment which prohibits animals, he is faced with the heartbreaking task of finding a home for his dog, Lucky Star. In his search he meets all the pets of the neighborhood and their dissatisfied masters. And in finding the perfect situation for Lucky Star, he also finds more suitable homes for a monkey, a cat, a parrot, a pigeon, and a tank of gold fish. Suspense, based on the convincing love of a boy for his dog, a familiar neighborhood background, and a cast of recognizable grown ups, makes Dan Dooley's story, with its amusing illustrations by Vanna Earle, appetizing fare for the young reader.
