Fred Stays With Me!

Told from the point of view of a young child whose parents are divorced, Fred Stays with Me! follows a girl and her dog, Fred, from one parent's house to the other's, giving her a sense of continuity and stability.

With a simple text and childlike language, the story expresses and addresses a child's concerns, highlights the friendship between child and pet, presents a common ground for the parents, and resolves conflict in a positive way. Tricia Tusa's charming and whimsical artwork adds a light, happy feel to this poignant -- but not overly sentimental -- story.

"The story unfolds through the voice of the child: 'Sometimes I live with my mom. Sometimes I live with my dad. My dog, Fred, stays with me.' Her descriptions of what she does at each residence and Fred's constant affection and consistent bad behavior can be read independently by the intended audience." -- School Library Journal
