Just 60 pages in and I'm snagged - hook, leash and bone. This is a wonderful book!Update: I loved it! Anyone out there with a kid who reads should grab this book. My only (minor) complaint was that the celestial world was a little under-defined. But nevermind, most of the action happens on earth and it's well written, funny and zips by before you can say "Good boy, Sirius! Now go lie down."
