Five top books on dogs

One title on the Barnes & Noble Review's list of five books on dogs:
The Story of Edgar Sawtelle
by David Wroblewski

In one of the most inventive retellings of Shakespeare ever put to paper, David Wroblewski introduces an unlikely Hamlet: a voiceless boy, living on a Wisconsin farm, where a breed of highly intelligent dogs is raised by his family. When the murder of his father shatters his familiar world, young Edgar flies into the surrounding wilderness, accompanied by three faithful yearling pups. The result is a daring, risky, and completely captivating novel, with the bond between boy and dogs is at its heart.
Read about a work of non-fiction on the list.
