“I have read a book narrated by a horse (Robert E. Lee's Traveler), a cat (Sneaky Pie Brown), and now a dog (Chet). The horse is a much better storyteller. Of course he did have an unfair advantage, being present at the biggest battles of the Civil War.
I got suckered into this book by its dust jacket which has a shot of Monument Valley, one of my favorite locations. The story does take place in a valley, but it is not Monument and is only a generic valley called the Valley. And it was only after I started reading that I realized that a dog was going to be the narrator.
It really is true that you can't judge a book by its cover. So why do I keep trying? ”
