Have you ever felt like your dog understands you? Sam Van Arsdale did. In fact,
Sam's dog understood English, French and even Morse Code!
This is the story of Jim the Wonder Dog - a Llewellin Setter living in the 1930s who
amazed everyone with his ability to follow any command, hunt like a champion, and
even predict the future.
Was Jim really super smart, or just very well trained? What exactly do animals
know, and how much of our language can they truly understand? These questions
and more are explored through the story of a unique dog's remarkable life in "Jim
the Wonder Dog."
Newspapers across America are connecting young readers to their communities
