Jack, a storm-snatched cabin boy, washes up on a mysterious island. He finds sheep, sheep dogs, and wild dogs called fangos, but strangely, no people

We are like Rottentomatoes or Metacritic for books. We also do book giveaways. Jack, a storm-snatched cabin boy, washes up on a mysterious island. He finds sheep, sheep dogs, and wild dogs called fangos, but strangely, no people. She and the other sheep dogs are mystified by the skinny boy, who does not fit their myths about people.

The dogs fare particularly well

The dogs fare particularly well. They are not anthropomorphized, but they are relatable as noble and generous. Middle-grade boys and girls will find much to appreciate here, right up to the poignant ending.

When Jack washes up on a mysterious island after a deadly storm, there's no one to help him, except for the dogs. The sheepdogs on the island have eyes that speak right to Jack's heart, especially one dog-Moxie. But when angry beasts called fangos threaten to destroy the island, Jack and his companions must fight to save it. Once the battle ends, Jack is changed.

Jack, a storm-snatched cabin boy, washes up on a mysterious island. He finds sheep, sheep dogs, and wild dogs called fangos, but strangely, no people. Jack struggles to survive, to understand the dogs, and to befriend a little Border collie named Moxie. She and the other sheep dogs are mystified by the skinny boy, who does not fit their myths about people. During a final battle between the fangos and the sheep dogs, Jack finds he can communicate with the dogs, a discovery that deepens his friendship with Moxie and validates his life on the island. But the crew from Jack's ship returns to rescue him-now that Jack does not want to be rescued. This middle-grade novel, told from Moxie's and Jack's alternating points of view, reads like a classic adventure story-vivid, swiftly paced, and woven with the timeless themes of a boy's self-reliance and the intense loyalty of dogs.

I have loved this book ever since I first read it in 3rd grade (I am 17 now). If you are looking for a heartwarming story between a dog and a boy, well, you won't find it here. It's not a ooey-gooey heartfelt/heartwarming feel good story, it's gritty, it's about survival, it's about how dogs can be loving heart warming companions one moment and ferocious beasts the next. It's very "real". It's very detailed in how the dogs see things, and how the boy learns to communicate with the dogs and he kind of turns into one himself! This book is what first got me into dog behaviorism and feral children. (Though since he has had so much human contact, most likely in reality he wouldn't have turned into a feral child, and I can't say why it got me interested in feral children, it would ruin the book...) I especially love the personal connection between Jack and Moxie. I highly recommend this for anyone who has a child who especially loves dogs and is interested in how they think, its a good introduction to more higher and detailed reading on dog behaviorism, even though its a novel it helps you think abstractly and is actually quite accurate in how animals see the world.

I am a mother of two sons, ages 9 and 3. We read this book for eldest son's book club. He enjoyed it and asked to read "just one more chapter" constantly. I personally thought it was drawn out too long. The story of a boy who learns to love and give love through the setting of being abandoned to an island habitated by wild dogs, sheep dogs (and sheep). There aren't any fowl words, suggestive scenes or common crud that too often shows up in children's literature so I am thankful for this book. Over all I give it a 5 stars because it's clean fun, suspenceful reading that grabbed my childrens interest.

I purchased this book for my grandson and we both enjoyed the story. The dual story line, one from the main character, Jack, and the other from the dogs, was interesting. I am a retired teacher and this book would be a wonderful one to read aloud to a class. I saw a lot of ways to use it to teach reading skills. I highly recommend this book.

The Boy Who Spoke Dog is a book about a boy who was on a ship that was headed to disaster in a storm. The boy, Jack, escaped on a lifeoat and came to an island where two packs of dogs lived. Feral ones, called fangos, which attacked sheep on raids and ate them, and sheep dogs, which protected the sheep, and if the fangos had to run off before they could eat the sheep that they had killed, the sheep dogs would eat them. The sheep were all the dogs' food supply, so they relied on each other despite being enemies. Jack first meets the fangos, where he escapes up a tree. Soon, he manages to escape, following a black and white border collie called Moxie by the rest of the sheep dogs. Moxie leads Jack to a broken-down hut surrounded by sheep and sheep dogs guarding them. Soon, a fango raid commences and Jack helps out. From then on, Jack tries hard to survive, eating some of the sheep that the fangos took down. Both sheep dogs, fangos, and now Jack live off the sheep. He got the meat by way of a knife. Sage, the oldest dog and the only one, besides Fango, the leader of the fangos, to remember humans, brings Jack to a sack filled with some items needed for Jack's survival. Eventually, Jack gets cornered by Fango and some others while trying to run for the shore, and Moxie saves him after Fango tries to stutter some words, but fails due to his corruption. Finally, the ship that Jack bailed out on comes back to forcefully pick him off the island. The arrival of the ship solved his problem of surviving, but he was reluctant to leave the dogs he somehow has suddenly formed a telepathic bond with. That is a plot point I didn't really understand. He communicates with Sage's spirit after he gets killed by fangos, then communicates with Moxie. I think you are supposed to believe the trauma or the extended living with the dogs caused it, but it is not fully explained. This is mainly why I rated it 4/5, instead of 5/5, since the author uses vivid language and creativity to express the story of the boy who learned to speak dog (somehow).
