The Forever Dog

by Bill Cochran
Illustrated by Dan Andreasen

Published by HarperCollins, 2007
32 pages
ISBN: 9780060539399

Ages 4-8

Corky and Mike are inseparable. The little dog and little boy are best friends—forever friends. When Corky gets sick and dies, Mike is not only devastated, he’s hurt and angry, too. Corky broke their pact. With the help of his mom, Mike is able to move beyond his anger by remembering many good times he and Corky shared—good times he’ll never forget. “Then he let Corky all the way into his heart. And it felt warm inside.” Bill Cochran’s child-centered story is a sensitive look at the death of a pet and a child’s experience of loss, warmly illustrated by Dan Andreasen.  © Cooperative Children's Book Center
