What’s that in Dog Years?

by Ben Davis

A boy decides to create a bucket list for his dog who he knows is getting old. Gizmo has been my best friend since the day I was born – he’s always been around. But now they’re telling me he might not always be around which completely sucks.

I’m determined that me and Gizmo will have lots more fun and adventures before he goes – I mean, he loves parties, deserves pampering, and needs a break by the seaside. And as for that old saying about how you can’t teach an old dog new tricks – it’s true, you really can’t! Gizmo’s bucket list is up and running – unlike Gizmo who is totally lazy and demanding to be carried. Addresses values of resilience, friendship, tolerance.

What’s that in dog years is an extraordinary book. It helps you understand to spend more time with loved ones and to always have a go.

The author has created an atmosphere and a rollercoaster of emotions using description and detail. He has used a lot of different sizes of sentences . It makes you want to keep reading through the adventure. I also like how the author wrote the book in two perspectives – Gizmo and George.
