himself, and he was afraid Along the way, the little dog found a few friends, people who gave him shelter for a while, but always he moved on until he found a place he could call home forever I think DeJong s great strength in this book is the expression of Candy s tragedy as a dog tragedy, not a human one Obviously, Candy is anthropomorphized we don t actually know how a dog thinks but if we did, I think the soul of it would be very much Candy s soul for that personality type of dog I believe animals have emotions they are not human emotions although they could quite resemble them And the

Obviously, Candy is anthropomorphized we don t actually know how a dog thinks but if we did, I think the soul of it would be very much Candy s soul for that personality type of dog I believe animals have emotions they are not human emotions although they could quite resemble them And the hopeless hopefulness of Candy has dog written all over it, from what external observation of dogs has shown.Candy also typifies the casual cruelty we subject these dependent domestic animals to when we which is the norm claim them inferior to humans but simultaneously apply human rules and judgments to their behavior arbitrarily They do not qualify the same privileges as humans but are victim to the same punishments and even social dysfunctions Enjoyed on openlibrary.org Didn t feel a lot of depth Some insights are nice, though such as the description of Candy learning to play for the first time as a grown dog, how he took it so seriously.The pictures by Sendak didn t quite reveal his genius, imo, but they are enjoyable The main theme seems to be the same one in Black Beauty The lessons I learned are most especially don t take a pup from its mother too young, and don t use a broom to discipline it Probably don t use a rolled up Enjoyed on openlibrary.org Didn t feel a lot of depth Some insights are nice, though such as the description of Candy learning to play for the first

knows the heart and mind of a dog as intimately as if it were his own mind, knows its shortcomings and inabilities and the different kind of courage that it possesses, the honor and love that makes dogs be the creatures that have been mankind s most consistent companion for years untold Real, warm sympathy pours forth from the cracks of this story not contrived occurrences designed to make one feel sorry for the protagonist, but genuine sympathy that comes from an inspirational well of caring deep inside of the author This quality is one of the most impressive things about the book, but not necessarily the most impressive With jarring reality, Meindert DeJong has painted the picture, through one little dog, of what it is like to be traumatically hurt, to feel betrayed and to fear people and to run from their presence Anyone who has ever felt such things will find themselves drawn to this deeply resounding story, as Meindert DeJong seems to describe their own heartache with uncanny sensitivity Candy, the dog, develops a terrible fear of brooms from puppyhood, because of his first owner s way of punishing him for doing wrong by jabbing him with a sharp bristled broom until he succumbs to the torment As Candy goes through his life and finds kind people who, in their own turn, are willing to adopt him, he sees that each one of them also has their own broom, and realizes that no matter how kind the person may seem, he or she will always eventually have a broom, ostensibly to frighten and torture him In my mind, this book s most powerful lesson of all is that the people we know will always have their own broom, and be capable of inflicting pain, but the important question is if they will use the broom to cause hurt, or not I really was surprised by the inner strength and beauty of this fine juvenile novel Meindert DeJong writes with seemingly complete understanding, and the simple plot carries important emotional undertones Hurry Home, Candy is richly deserving of the awards and acclaim that have been given to it I will always dearly remember this book There were only two good things in his little life the two children The children were lovely He lived for them He might forget and do wrong again and again, he might not understand and do wrong a thousand times, but that one thing he understood their love for him, his love for them It all but consumed his little heart Hurry Home, Candy, P 43 This was perhaps the book that made me love reading and dogs simultaneouslyI was in the 2nd grade living in Lake Stevens, Washington My teacher, Mrs.Fields, would
