Oliver for Young Readers shares the heartwarming true story of a man searching for a beloved lost dog and finding more than he'd ever hoped for.
When Steven Carino discovered his dog, Oliver, had been stolen from his car, he knew he would do anything to get Oliver back. The friendly Yorkie-Shih Tzu mix--with his bundle of black and brown hair, long floppy ears, and big round eyes--had been Steven's companion during even the loneliest days. But it took more than one man to bring Oliver home. It took a community of friends and strangers who believed that love is worth fighting for.
Oliver for Young Readers is a story of good people--including hardworking immigrants, wealthy suburbanites, car mechanics, deli workers, old friends, close relatives, street cops, a dedicated TV news reporter, and one very gifted hairdresser--offering help without asking for anything in return. It's a story of near misses, false hopes, and fresh leads ending in a joy-filled reunion on the streets of a rundown New York neighborhood. It's a story of faith renewed and hope restored. But most of all, Oliver for Young Readers offers a story of good triumphing over despair--a beautiful reminder to even the youngest readers that a little kindness can truly change the world.
