Love, Loss And Friendship
A Dog Called Homeless by Sarah Lean is a beautiful contemporary children’s novel about love, loss and friendship. It is suitable for ages eight years and over.
The novel explores the chasm left following the death of a mother (a year before the story opens). Everyone deals with death differently but no one believes Cally when she says she sees her Mum.
Love stretches beyond the grave as we witness the ties a mother has for her family.
New friendships are formed that are crucial for all involved. A huge dog unites hearts.
Communication is more than just our voice. We see the importance of Braille to open up lives.
The story is written in the first person from the point of view of Cally. We understand her emotions and feel her sense of loss.
A Dog Called Homeless is a beautiful tale and perfect for any age.
