Reviews for Pets to the Rescue: Brave Norman
RatingComments
5I feel like I should do a disclaimer here: I have particular interest in thrown away critters with disabilities; I have a houseful of them!

With that said, "Brave Norman" is a GREAT book. It not only touches on animal shelters and how critters with disabilities are treated ("Are you sure you want to keep him?" p. 3), but Norman is shown as essentially normal despite his blindness. Then Norman even gets to be the hero by rescuing a little girl who was drowning, not only DESPITE his blindness but probably BECAUSE of it (he heard her cries and responded when the humans didn't notice).

I can't find a single thing here to even think about taking a star away. PERFECT!!!!
