    An interesting book about an abused puppy, genetic engineering, bullies, friendship and a solitary elderly neighbor. It talks about what a "Family" is (including dear friends), about doing the right thing. Set in the English Countryside. A good chapter book for school age kids with an interest in science and animals. I would love to see more books about Mo!

    I enjoyed the book. It was easy to read and it kept my focus until the end. The book was an adventure about a puppy who could not bark that was saved by a caring family. This family gave the puppy a great present and that was to talk like a human. Read it! You will enjoy the story.

    Loved the book! Cute dog-pog as I call 'em! A great read for "kids of all ages!" Now then, "if only they could speak... and..." they sure would be worth a fortune :-) Loved the book!

    This is a delightful tale about an abused puppy who is rescued by the son of a somewhat unconventional vet. Henry Ashton, the vet, has been deeply interested in genetic engineering for some time and is hoping to find an animal to place a human voice box in; grown from tissue. When Martin, his son, rescues the puppy from the canal, and they realise the puppy is unable to bark, he becomes the ideal candidate for Henry to 'help'. I must explain at this point, Henry is no maker of monsters, but genu This is a delightful tale about an abused puppy who is rescued by the son of a somewhat unconventional vet. Henry Ashton, the vet, has been deeply interested in genetic engineering for some time and is hoping to find an animal to place a human voice box in; grown from tissue. When Martin, his son, rescues the puppy from the canal, and they realise the puppy is unable to bark, he becomes the ideal candidate for Henry to 'help'. I must explain at this point, Henry is no maker of monsters, but genuinely wishes to assist the animal, despite his vested interest. Henry operates and lo; Mo has a voice box. Hence, we have Mo the talking dog. Mo is very carefully taught his words by the family, and picks up quite a few more from Mimic, the family's African Grey parrot , who also talks, and with whom he watches children's television. Much of their speech is gleaned from this. Needless to say, the Ashton family's life begins to take on a whole new meaning; something they all seem to take very much in their stride. And so the adventure begins. I thoroughly enjoyed this book. It is funny, well put together and the characters are well-rounded and extremely likeable; well, most of them anyway. The plot is tight and clever. It reads just like any good old adventure story, which will have children routing for Mo and Martin as the tale rolls on. It's very entertaining and in parts keeps you wondering what on earth will happen next. My only disappointment being, the animal abusers should have been dealt with more severely. This book addresses so many issues; animal abuse, bullying, the ethics of genetic engineering and doing the right thing where others are concerned. All of which are dealt with in an empathic manner. I also loved the way Mo talked, and for those who find him hard to understand, you can find 'Mo's Dictionary' at the back of the book. The book cover confused me a little. It is very sweet, but being so simplistic, I was expecting a story for much younger children. In fact, I was delighted when I found it be a chapter book of some reasonable length. I can highly recommend this - whether you are a dog lover or not – and can see more than one generation enjoying it.

    This book was given to me through the Making Connections YA Edition by the author for an honest review, thank you. Mo – The Talking Dog by Michelle Booth is a cute dog centric book for children.

Mo – The Talking Dog by Michelle Booth is a cute dog centric book for children. It centers around Mo, short for Moses, a dog that can’t make a sound and who was rescued from drowning by Martin, the son of a veterinarian named Henry. Henry has an incredible dream of getting a dog to talk. Told in third person omniscient, the readers are able to get into the head of almost every single character in the story and that includes the dogs and the parrot. Normally I don’t like this POV, but since there were so many characters in this story and it was written for children it works. The only trouble I had was that sometimes it wasn’t clear which viewpoint we were seeing through. I think a little bit more tidying up of the changes in viewpoint would help, especially since the POV switched quite rapidly most of the time. The action was well paced and kept my attention, it was also easy to read. I give Mo – The Talking Dog 3.5 stars for its cuteness and raise it to 4 stars for its entertainment value.

    I really liked this book and I give this story five stars for a well deserved author's story! Great job! This book was an easy read and yet I found it hard to set it down for long and wanted to finish it as soon as I could to see what if the dog gets back to his family after having been kidnapped not just once but twice and in one day's time. I recommend this book to any animal lovers whither very young to the oldest readers who loves animals and cares about their livelihood.

    Loved Michelle's book - Mo is quite a character! Didn't realize it was a 'kiddie' book - unless you call me a kid at age 50-something! Loved Michelle's book - Mo is quite a character! Didn't realize it was a 'kiddie' book - unless you call me a kid at age 50-something!

    Lovely book for children (and their parents!) about a funny puppy who learns to talk, thanks to some actually quite plausible surgery and the family parrot. I like the themes of bullying, assertiveness, and settling into a new school too.
