Timbuktu- Paul Auster

Timbuktu is a great story about love, companionship, and dogs. The story is told through the eyes of a dog, Mr. Bones. Mr. Bones is a mutt that a poet named Willy G. Christmas adopts as a companion. Willy and Mr. Bones have many adventures before willy died. After Willy Dies, Mr. Bones runs off and has tio fend for himself in the wild. He also finds love and companionship again, even after he thought it impossible. This is a great book for any reading level and for anybody who loves dogs.

Auster got a lot of criticism for writing a "doggy" story (too cutesy etc.) I think that Timbuktu is a great book, in spite of the fact that the main character has four feet. Mr. Bones is a complex and thoughtful character, and although he has those human traits attributed to him, they are not exaggerated in a cartoonish or silly way.
