Always (Picture Book)

Released June 2009

Reviewed by Bob Walch

The diminutive dog featured in this adorable picture book has signed on for a very big job. As the self-proclaimed "keeper of the castle,” he’ll have to protect his best friend, a little dark haired girl, from all sorts of danger.

He will keep the "castle" safe from squirrels, guard against monsters (a tiny spider), halt avalanches (toys falling out of the closet) and patrol for intruders such as a band of savage mice.

The dog will also keep watch over the little girl's blanket at night (by lying on top of her) and, if necessary, divert meteors with a baseball bat. Why is the little fellow willing to brave such dangers and repel all invaders?

He says, "Do you mean to say that you don't know? Because you live here."

Even though the dog is the narrator of this picture book, it isn't too much of a stretch to pretend that you would perform all these brave feats to protect your little princess too!
