SECOND-CHANCE SAM

Written JoAnn Sky, Illustrated by John Tatulli

** Kirkus Reviews Best Book of 2019 ! **

"A moving tribute to shelter dogs, the humans who love them, and the wisdom of looking beyond outward appearances." - Kirkus Reviews (starred review)

Click here to read the entire starred review 

A lonely, older shelter dog gets a new lease on life in this fun story about acceptance. Sam finally gets adopted, but his new family lives next door to an old car junkyard. Confused at first by all the junk, Sam quickly adapts and helps visitors find special parts and "treasures" and also becomes friends with a host of animals who've made the junkyard their forever home. See, treasures don't have to be snazzy and new. This scruffy, old second-chance dog proves it's true!

In addition to promoting recycling, SECOND-CHANCE SAM is a story about starting over and making new friends gently reminding us to be thankful for what we have, not to judge a book by its cover, and that everyone deserves a second chance.


Perfect for youngsters, the young-at-heart, anyone who loves dogs... and anyone who believes in second chances. This book is printed in the USA.
