" Tornado" by Betsy Byars

If you are looking for a good book then look for the book Tornado. This book is about a boy and his family. One day a surprise tornado hits the farm, Pete tell a story of when he was younger and they had a tornado. During this tornado a doghouse had flown to their yard and when they looked inside they saw a big black dog! They named him tornado. When Pete went with his dad to the town for lumber, a little girl saw the dog in the back of the truck and started calling him buddy. The little girl said that she had lost him in the tornado at the same time that Pete and his family had found Tornado. Pete was so upset. One day when he was doing work in the barn, Pete thought he was hearing Tornado scratching at the door because he missed him so. When he turned around to look to see what was making all of the noise he saw Tornado. Tornado must have run away from the little girl to come back to Pete and his family. When his father saw the dog he told Pete that the dog would have to stay here and not come with them to the town if he wanted to keep the dog. If the little girl found out where he was though he would have to give him up again.
I give this book five stars and think that you should read it too.

I love a good dog (or cat) story! Try "Shiloh" or "Because of Winn Dixie."
