An inspiring story of a stray dog adopted by the post office of Albany, New York. Whom became a world traveler with the help of post offices and people from all around the world. A most enjoyable read for pet lovers.

Personal Reaction: I thought this was a fun, lighthearted read that was based on a true story about a curious dog who traveled the world thanks to the help of people from all over the world. The story expressed lots diversity by showing the dog, Owney, meet new individuals from a variety of countries around the world. The illustrations portrayed different cultures that intrigued me as a reader to continue reading. Some examples of places that the dog visited were from the United States to China [...]

The story of a dog traveling the world was too good to pass up. Owney was a stray who captured the hearts of the Albany, NY postmaster. The dog soon hopped a mail train to increasingly farther destinations. His friendliness and sense of adventure took him all over the world in a journey that lasted 8 years. Written in the form of letter correspondence, you follow Owney in his adventures. The illustrations are wonderful, but the length of the written passages make it a book for lower elementary c [...]

I first learned about Owney in a song, "Owney's Song" by Stephen Michael Schwartz on his album "Songs from the Sandbox." This book tells about Owney's 8 years with the Railway Postal Service through a series of fictional letters and newspaper articles from probably fictional people who met him on his many travels.

Fun story about a little dog's travels all over the U.S. and around the world. Apparently, the dog is stuffed and on display with all his tags at the National Postal Museum, just a few miles from where we live. Field trip!

Kate and I happened to grab this from the library the other day and we were all enchanted. Real life letters about a famous dog (Post Office Mascot that also rode the domestic mail trains all over the country) that traveled the world in the 1890s.

I don't like read aloud books that are written in letters instead of a narrative. Just my two cents.
