A must read for the holidays. This is a delightful series about the McCray family. The characters are interesting and complex at times. The story flow is good. The McCray's have a son who is challenged but they have never treated him different. They enable him to learn and find his way with some guidance. The community as well respect Todd and enable him to be himself quirks and all. This feel good book happens at Christmas which is a special time of year where anything is possible. If we enable and encourage our young people they can do great things is the lesson to learn. Like that it is based as well around animals especially dogs. Todd cares very deeply for the animals and he trains and encourages them to be their best. Mary Ann and George care about the animals and their community as well. Feel good book I recommend as well as the entire series.
