Half of me was thinking, Georgina, don't do this. Stealing a dog is just plain wrong. The other half of me was thinking, Georgina, you're in a bad fix and you got to do whatever it takes to get yourself out of it. Georgina Hayes is desperate. Ever since her father left and they were evicted from their apartment, her family has been living in their car. With her mama juggling two jobs and trying to make enough money to find a place to live, Georgina is stuck looking after her younger brother, Toby. And she has her heart set on improving their situation. When Georgina spots a missing-dog poster with a reward of five hundred dollars, the solution to all her problems suddenly seems within reach. All she has to do is "borrow" the right dog and its owners are sure to offer a reward. What happens next is the last thing she expected. With unmistakable sympathy, Barbara O'Connor tells the story of a young girl struggling to see what's right when everything else seems wrong. How to Steal a Dog is a 2008 Bank Street - Best Children's Book of the Year. This title has Common Core connections.

Aggie isn't expecting visitors at the Sleepy Time Motel in the Great Smoky Mountains. Since her husband died, she is all alone with her cat, Ugly, and keeping up with the bills has become impossible. When she places a For Sale ad in the newspaper, Aggie doesn't know that Kirby and his mom will need a room when their car breaks down on the way to Kirby's new reform school. Or that Loretta and her parents will arrive in her dad's plumbing company van on a trip meant to honor the memory of Loretta's birth mother. Or that Clyde Dover will answer the For Sale ad and move in with his daughter, Willow, looking for a brand-new life after Willow's mom left. Perhaps the biggest surprise of all is that Aggie and her guests find just the friends they need at the shabby motel in the middle of nowhere. From an author long recognized for her true Southern voice and heartfelt characters, Greetings from Nowhere, with its four intertwining stories, brings Barbara O'Connor's work to a new level of sophistication.

Of the world s dogs, only 1 out of every 4 could be considered pets, provided with food, shelter, breeding, grassy parks, doggie spas and day care. But millions of dogs roam the planet. These are village dogs, or neighborhood dogs those that live in Masai villages, the streets of Calcutta, or that inhabit the Mexico City Dump. They are unrestrained, they are not owned, and, most importantly, humans exert no control over their reproduction these are dogs, not pets. Like other wild species, these dogs have evolved to particular niches, often in the vicinity of humans, as they are highly adapted scavengers. And their adaptation is behavioral and morphological the dogs themselves tend to look alike. Measurements of temple dogs in Thailand are strikingly similar to mountain dogs of Ethiopia, to the urban dogs of Nassaue and Mexico City. We read rarely of these dogs, but their story is one of incredible natural selection. And they provide a fascinating means of exploring what it actually means genetically and behaviorally to be a dog. Raymond and Lorna Coppinger have studied these dogs for nearly four decades, and building upon their "Dogs, "which we published in paperback, they here present the first general interest book on these dogs. The book runs counter to the many books now available about companion dogs and particular breeds. Many a bulldog or greyhound afficianado may be disappointed to learn how little their beloveds actually resemble dogs. The dogs the Coppingers introduce here are hardly our best friend they are responsible for the 70,000 human deaths from rabid bites each year. They also are the world s second largest public health problem sexually transmitted diseases being the first. "What is a Dog? "explores the natural history of these dogs. What resources (food, water, shelter) are available to them? How are those resources shared or competed for? How does an animal convert food into energy without being eaten itself? How does the physical environment, the ecological landscape, shape behavior? Readers dog lovers and those curious about animal origins in general will walk unleashed into a new appreciation for just what it means to be a dog."
