The Best People In The World!

If you're looking for a delightful story with a beautiful message of love and hope for your teenage child, then look no further than Hobo by Sandra Farris. It's truly a short story of a boy named Joby Richards who while out exploring around the woods and lands near his house, he comes across a dog he calls Hobo. Hobo is actually a tan-colored dog who belongs to Mr. Robbins, a local hermit and trapper who is usually gone for long periods of time, often leaving his dog behind.

Joby has a really affection for the dog and begs his parents, Sarah and Ben Richards to let him take care of the dog while Mr. Robbins is away from his home. While considering his offer, his parents insist that he gets permission from Mr. Robbins first but until Joby does, they insist he keep some distance between himself and the dog considering he seems a bit wild at times.

However when a stranger shows up at the Richards farm one day in need of help, they learn he has been attacked by a local dog that fits the description of Hobo. His parents remind Joby that the dog doesn't belong to him and he may be in danger if he gets too close. The stranger, a man named Smith tells the family he isn't done with the dog and if he sees him again, he will shoot the dog.

I will leave the rest of this delightful story a mystery and will have to say that it truly does have a powerful message behind it. It's also a must for pet lovers everywhere!!! I received Hobo by Sandra Farris compliments of the author for my honest review and I have to say it reminds me a bit of a shorter version of Old Yeller which has always been a classic and a favorite of mine! I easily rate this one a 5 out of 5 stars! This book is available on ebook format!
