My favorite character in the book Road Trip by Gary Paulsen and Jim Paulsen is Atticus the dog. Atticus is the family’s border collie who is very wise.
Ben gets forced into a road trip with his dad to rescue another border collie puppy who needs a home. Ben is not very happy to be riding along in a truck with his dad who just dropped a lot of bad news on Ben. Along the way, their road trip gets into a few sticky situations. They also meet some interesting people who join in on their rescue mission. There were a few things that happened that seem a little stretched but hearing Atticus’ humorous insights are worth the read.
If you are a dog or animal lover, I recommend Road Trip for you. As I listened to the audiobook, I had a few laughs.
