Praise for No Better Friend: Young Readers Edition "A riveting and highly moving dog story."--Kirkus Reviews

--School Library Journal
"Exceptionally well researched and engaging... No Better Friend is an inspiring story, and one that both dog lovers and history buffs will embrace."--Deborah Hopkinson, BookPage
"Robert Weintraub captures the beauty and power of friendship and loyalty between man and animal in this captivating narrative. We'd all be lucky to have a dog like Judy by our sides in our darkest times."
