What is it About?
A dog chained outside is rescued by his two wildlife friends and in turn he rescues some one else in need.
Worthless is a dog given as name truly not deserved. He is chained outside to only a small area in his owner yard and is not cared for properly. His two friends a fox and a otter decide to rescue him and find a new home. Then one day Worthless earns a new name and a new owner doing what all dogs hope to do which is make a human proud and have a new best friend.
I love the art and the story of this book my only wish is that there was more story. Some questions are left unanswered like what happened to the dog’s friends after he rescues his new owner? How did they become friends in the first place? Those are just some of the things that went through my head while reading that I hope one day will be answered.
