*Starred Review* What could be better than a book about a dog who loves books and hates goodbyes? Moose, an energetic mutt, hates it when Zara goes off in her wheelchair to school, so he insists on joining herâin the classroom, the library, and the cafeteria (the latter leads to a hilarious game of tag). What to do? Dog therapy school provides the answer, and Moose becomes an official reading buddy. Gianferrari's choice of language fits this determined dog who views goodbye as "an itch that couldn't be scratched" or "tug without war, hide without seek." And how welcome that Zara's wheelchair is portrayed only in the illustrations, presented as just another facet of her life. Barton's soft palette adds a warmth to the story, and her lively illustrations give life to Moose's moods: smug when in the company of Zara, chastened and sad when not. The resolution, which is Zara's idea, is the perfect solution and reminds us of potential jobs for canine companions; an author's note further discusses therapy dogs and the role they can play in the classroom, and may prompt young readers to learn more. Pair with The Hello, Goodbye Window (2005), by Norton Juster, for another book about leaving and coming home. Copyright 2017 Booklist Reviews.
