Noel was born on Christmas day and is the last of a line of long time family dogs who’ve served the farm. Her instincts care for the animals and people on the farm, plus she accomplishes a moving rescue on Christmas Eve in the midst of an enormous blizzard. I sort of expected a little more ‘connection’ between the characters, but then this was a story about Noel and her sense of responsibility for anyone and anything in need.
I love the way Noel thinks..she has a sort of dry humor in her.
This story will intrigue kids, but it doesn’t talk down to them. If you have a Great Pyrenees at your house or if you have known one of these sweet, serious dogs, you will enjoy Noel and relate to the heroic, sensitive qualities that you know in your friend.
A quick pleasure read that won’t do you wrong!
