The Truth of Me: About a Dog, His Grandmother, and a Ver
y Good Dog
This book did not find me. I found this book and I found it before praise was used to honor this book.(example: a Publishers'
Weekly Best Children's Book of 2013). If you enjoy realistic fiction with unreal events, this book will spark your imagination. Robbie gets to spend the summer with his grandmother. His mother gets too busy with her music and she goes on tour in Europe. It is so unreal that she barely has time to say goodbye to her mom and son when she drops off Robbie. Grandma Maddy considers all the wild animals her pets. A bear comes at night and she lets Robbie touch a bobcat. What grandma would let you touch a bobcat? Robbie respects grandma; grandma respects Robbie. They spend the entire summer together. He finds out a lot of "truth" about his grandmother, his mother, and himself.
