The Year of the Dog: Tales from the Chinese Zodiac by Oliver Chin, illustrated by Miah Alcorn [in Bloomsbury Review]
Daniel Dog becomes best friends almost instantly with human neighbor Lin. He does his very best to protect her, although sometimes that amounts to just a few premature barks. But his diligence pays off and Daniel indeed saves the day – not to mention he saves young Lin!
