Have you ever wished for a talking dog?  Amy Prochenko, a fifth grader, thinks of herself as wildly unpopular until Sherlock the talking dog finds her.  He is on the run, an escapee from the university genetics lab.  Sherlock turns Amy's life upside down as she becomes swept up in a dangerous adventure, attempting to rescue him. What will happen to Amy as she realizes the risks involved in saving the delightful Sherlock?  Read this funny, eventful, fast-paced story for a new way of thinking about how parents, children, teachers, and pets interact with each other.  (Jeannie Bellavance for Pennsylvania Young Reader's Choice Awards)
