The book “Fritzi Finds a New Home” by Nellie Branan is about a little dog that goes away from his mom and brothers and sisters to live with a family.  A lady came and got him and brought him to her house to live.  The lady was nice, but she had a man who came to the house and he did not treat Fritzi nicely.  He was very mean to Fritzi and he even kicked Fritzi.  Then, the lady had a baby and the man got even meaner toward Fritzi.  One day, he just dumped Fritzi in the woods and left him there.

This book was a very sad book.  I didn’t like to see how mean that man was to the dog.  The dog was a good dog.  I did like how the book ended though.  That was my favorite part of the book.   I liked the picture in the beginning of the book of Fritzi and the picture at the very end.  In the pictures in the middle, the man looks really mean and Fritzi looks very scared and sad.  I am glad “Fritzi Finds a New Home” by Nellie B ranan had a happy ending.
