    1. I think I read this ages ago, but it must not have made a big impression at the time At least from an adult perspective, it s a pleasant quick read that presents good insights into one particular youthful mind I liked how Edward recognizes his own shortcomings The reactions of his parents are interesting not typical, but still believable I m looking forward to reading the other two books in the series The Leonard Shortall illustrations are just perfect for the story.


    2. This book was written by Mary Stolz but the edition I read listed the author as M.S Stolz and did not provide any information about the author I wonder if that s because the book is written from the point of view of a boy and she didn t want to scare off boy readers with her name That reminds me of a book I read when I was a young teenager that was written from the boy s point of view I was so disappointed when I saw that the author was female because I was so surprised by the feelings expressed [...]


    3. My 8 year old grandson and I read this book together, and we really liked it Though the book was written in 1960, it still is very relevant In this book 5th grader Edward has two goals in life to convince his parents that he is responsible enough to take care of a dog, and to rid his life of Martin, the 6th grade bully who lives next door One day Edward s uncle Josh comes for a visit, along with a dog named Argess that he acquired along the way Josh is a wanderer He has no job and just roams the [...]


    4. This is a book my Dad read as a kid that I read as a kid, and then reread last month It s about a boy who wishes he had a dog He has this hobo uncle who wanders the world instead of settling down who visits the family, and brings an amazing dog with him And there s a bully next door The best part to me was the writing about the parents, who are trying to negotiate adulthood in a fairly interesting way it s not all father s know best, the parents seem very human and normal and relatable The uncle [...]


    5. This could be your typical boy wants a dog and is constantly bullied by the neighbor story Only when you pair it with The Bully of Barkham Street, you see that there is much going on here A very nice story on its own, but even better when you read both books.


    6. I m really not sure where got that official description it has nothing to do with the book I know and love and yes, judging by the cover art here, this IS the A Dog on Barkham Street I m thinking of, and based on the reviews others have leftat s the one they re thinking of as well Please correct this,


    7. I think of it in much yonger this book would have been appealing to me but having read it when I m 27 I see the literary value of it and I enjoyed it I would definitely give it to a future child of mine or niece or nephew for them to read when they are about the age of the characters I m glad my dad gave it to me so that I could read it.


    8. It was a great book dealing with bullies and how children and parents get along The author wove the elements expertly together through the story We see Edward, a normal, ordinary, fifth grader But he doesn t stay that way He grows by steps and jumps as he learns to deal with the struggles of life He also learns to see his parents as people, not wardens.


    9. I loved this book as a boy It must have been because I always wanted a dog too I ve only read it once but I guess I loved it so much I still remember the name all these years Glad to see it is still being read


    10. This book is good Has good tips on why others may bully near the end Good about learning responsibility and realizing how difficult a mothers role can be sometimes I really enjoyed it Would be a good one for reading to children and discussing at the end of each chapter.



    11. i haven t read this since grade school, so this review is forty years late this was a favourite book when i was growing up.




    12. Surprising themes and un bradybunch solutions discussions of problems responibility, bullying, unconventional family members and families Too old for a read aloud to my class, though.


    13. Gives a warm feeling Isn t it grand to see a person turn over a new leaf Also grand when people choose to be merciful.





    14. Albeit at the level of a 5th or 6th grader, I found much enjoyment getting to read this book I would recommend it to people of a younger age.
