Such a treat! I gobbled it down.

Chester is a smart and sensitive dog who is looking for his Person. More than anything he wants to be a service dog, but he is afraid of loud noises and got scared during his service dog test and didn't pass. Eventually Chester is adopted by a family with a boy who doesn't seem to like dogs. Little by little, Chester learns how to communicate with Gus, who is on the autism spectrum, even though Gus doesn't talk. This is a really sweet story for animal lovers everywhere. ( )

This was a delightful children's story of Chester the wanna-be service dog, and his owner, a ten-year-old boy who has autism, named Gus. The story is written by Chester the dog and I thoroughly loved the way the author wrote this story. I felt like Chester was really thinking the things written about him and came to love the dog and kept cheering him on. At the same time I got to see a little of what goes on inside a child with autism, and was so glad Gus had a friend like Chester. It was a very heartwarming story, even for an adult. ( )

Today's review is by my son, Joshua Hunt. Josh and I read books together every day, Monday through Friday. Since I homeschool, I'm allowed to place emphasis on reading, comprehension and the least favorite for him:
Book Reports!
Chester and Gus, by Cammie McGovern

Chester and Gus is a great book, written from Chester the dog's point of view. He wants to be a service dog, but he has failed the qualifying test. Instead of going for the test again, the trainers decide to give him to family instead. It's because of someone special that makes Chester feel he has found his 'person'.

Gus is an autistic boy in middle school . He doesn't talk much and doesn't have many friends. Wanting to help, Gus's parents get him a dog. From there, a bond is made that brings the best out of both a boy and his dog.

The story of Chester and Gus was very funny, because it wasn't told like normal stories are told. A lot came from Chester and that made it fun and interesting. I loved hearing what was on his mind. I also liked how it made me feel. It also made me want a dog.

I agree with Josh about Chester and Gus. It's a heart-felt story and anyone, young or old would enjoy it. Most of the characters in the story are autistic, but it's Gus who needs help the most, which is why the story is so important to share. Sometimes the underdog gets the dog and the victory! I also found that my son gained a greater appreciation and understanding on autism.

By the way, this is Joshua's actual book report. How do you think he did? Leave us a message!

Cheers! I'm off to the next read!
