Castle in the Mist - Robert  McCarty, Stella Mustanoja McCarty Wouldn't you just love to be around while Mr. McCarty was spinning this tale? That is how I felt while reading this. I could just imagine that he wrote these stories weaving in little facts about his children and grandchildren. The second book in the Planet of the Dog series finds us back on Earth with the dogs once again saving mankind from themselves. This book works on so many levels. It can be read out loud to younger children, serve as a chapter book to older kids and adults will enjoy the message that it delivers to them. I think this one can stand alone although, I think reading Planet of the Dogs will give you a better basis of the characters. I really recommend this for all dog lovers since it reinforces what we already know: dogs are perfect!
