I love any tale about animals and “Where Archie Belongs” is just a wonderful story. While Michelle J. Choi wrote the book, according to her statement on the last page, to show that every dog out there deserves a home, I found another important point in the book… everyone (and every dog) is special in their own way and they just need to find that out for themselves. I think that the author has made both points very well in this story about the very loveable Archie. read more
