Bad Hat is such a likable character that he easily carries this story, and I found myself smiling as his good nature kept getting in the way of his desire to be a loner outlaw. Coming to this story right after reading Kimberly Bradley's "The War that Saved My Life", I saw a lot of similarities between the two main characters: both horribly abused, which makes both unable to trust others, and thus they instinctually reject the help that others offer.

The many pop-culture references felt out of place (and will probably date the book for future readers), but the witty dialogue and characterizations of the various pets made up for it. This was a fun read that I'd recommend to children who like stories about pets or who care about animal cruelty issues.

Great gentle introduction to the sad side of pet ownership. Deals honestly with abuse and neglect without being overwhelming. Webster will win your heart.
