Staff Reviews


This book is beautiful in a way that only a true story can be, as it unites the gut-wrenching chaos of World War Two’s Pacific Theater with the innocence and joy offered by the best dog stories. This one will make you laugh, cry, and shout for joy all on the same page, as Judy the English pure-bred pointer faces the horrors of war with a brave face and a wagging tail. Chock full of action, drama, suspense, and heart, Judy’s story showcases humanity not only at its darkest points, but also at its most pure. If you have a dog, be prepared to pet it between every page. So dog lovers, history lovers, and book lovers unite! No Better Friend is just begging to be read.

— Patrick Molluso
