I had no idea what this book was about when I got it. I saw the dog on the front cover and read the title stating it was a survival story. This book is about a dog’s survival after an apocalyptic event. Zombies are in the story, but most of the focus is on the dog which made it really intriguing. The illustrations in the book help a lot with the visualization. They go perfectly with this story.
The world will never be the same again. A deadly pathogen has infected almost every living animal on the planet. The story is told from the perspective of a dog. It is a story of his survival and fight to save his canine family and friends that were other pets in the home. Thomas Clark did a fantastic job getting us to that point of view. He incorporated multiple commands and do’s/don’ts that we tell our animals to keep them safe. The camaraderie and loyalty these pets have for each other is heartwarming. It is a true example of the love and sacrifices we make for our loved ones. The emotions while reading this story got intense at times! I really got sucked into this one! I honestly did not want the story to end. Overall, I really liked it because it got me thinking in a perspective that I never would have tried to understand on my own.
