Product Description

2007 Winner, Humane Society of the US KIND Award, Best Children''s Picture Book of the Year

2007 Winner, ASPCA HENRY BERGH AWARD, best Children''s Picture Book in the Companion Animal category

“Buddy Unchained is a deeply moving look at a dog abandoned and adopted. The story is simple yet of vast importance, and at the end we want nothing more than to make sure that all the Buddys of the world are loved and cared for like this patient, easy-to-please pup.”— Janet Leimeister, Events Manager, The Capitola Book Store

“Buddy Unchained is a valuable tool in teaching the message of compassion and empathy toward animals.” —Lisa Desjardins, Vice-President, Aroostook Animal Welfare Awareness Group

“I wanted to say how much my nephew and I have been enjoying Buddy Unchained. He asks me to read it twice in a row each time and the wonderful and moving images make such an impression on him. I can see it in his eyes, facial expressions and comments. I would like to commend firstly, the artist’s sensitive and expressive drawings which truly came from the heart. And I would like to commend Gryphon Press for their dedication to the voiceless. I am only now learning more about Gryphon Press and will certainly consider further purchases. More importantly, it has inspired me even more so to become involved in saving animals in need.”--Catherine Ciarrocchi, book buyer

"The Gryphon Press''s inspiring books bring education about empathy and the human-animal bond to children in the form of beautiful fictional picture books. These books have become an integral part of our humane education library program, since they provoke thoughtful dialogue about responsible pet care among our young participants. " --Lauren Briskin, Interim Humane Education Coordinator, Berkeley-East Bay Humane Society

From School Library Journal

Kindergarten-Grade 2—A yellow, mixed-breed dog narrates his life story. Buddy''s former owner did not feed him enough or provide clean water, and frequently left him chained outside. But things changed for the better when the animal was rescued and taken to a shelter, where he was subsequently adopted by a caring family. Attractive, realistic paintings invite readers to look into Buddy''s eyes and experience his emotions, both of neglect and of contentment in his new home. The author appends additional information about how to help an abused dog. Unfortunately, the list of suggested Web sites is uneven. Pets911 is the most appropriate for this age group, while the others should be used with caution with young children (e.g., Dogs Deserve Better includes disturbing photographs of abused dogs). The address given for ASPCA''s "Fight Cruelty" is incorrect. Use this story to supplement other heartwarming pet tales and skip the Web sites.— Blair Christolon, Prince William Public Library System, Manassas, VA

I am a HEAR (humane education ambassador reader) volunteer and this book was on their recommended reading list. I used this book to do a 3 hour session with children with learning disabilities and they couldn''t get enough of Buddy. I use this book when I take my dogs to read with elementary school children (PAWS for Reading) and the kids pick this book over any other, every time. I recently used this book when I gave a seminar about humane reading, to a group of adults and there wasn''t a dry eye in the house - and everyone wanted to know where he/she could get a copy.
Buddy unchained evokes more empathy toward animals than any other book I''ve ever seen (and I''ve seen a lot!). Buy it (lots of used copies around), read it, read it to kids, read it to adults, read it to Michael Vick, and read it to your "buddy" - and cherish it!!

Wonderful book with a great message. We happen to have a rescue dog, named Buddy, who most likely had a very similar life before he became part of our family.

I bought this for a friend who is a teacher in a school district that has chronic issues with animal neglect. I''m thinking of doing a fund raiser so that each classroom in the district can have one. I wish the local humane society sold them and gave them to prospective pet owners.

It''s a wonderful book teaching children about compassionate and humane care for dogs.

As a volunteer for a local pit bull advocacy group, I co-present free humane education lessons at urban community centers and schools to children ranging in age from pre-K to 6th grade.

I bought this book to try out with 5-7 year olds. The book triggered strong feelings of compassion in the children (and me, too). It was easy to identify Buddy''s basic needs for comfort and company. Without frightening or disturbing the children, Buddy''s plight evoked from the children ways to treat animals with love and respect. And it was also easy to transfer their ideas to identifying the same needs in people.

The book also had the elements of a plain old good story with engaging, clear illustrations--a winner on all counts.
