Hello my name is William. My dad just gave me a note and I don’t want to read it, but I do. It says he is leaving. He has left before but never wrote a note. I rip it up because I am mad. My mom cries a lot. One day she takes us to the shelter to adopt a dog. Our dad doesn’t like dogs. Well we couldn’t decide so we took four dogs and a cat. I think my sister, Elinor, communicates with them. It’s like she understands what the animals are thinking and saying. One day I hear it too. They are talking to us! Then mom sits us down at the table for a talk. Is it about dad? Does she want to tell us something else? You will be waiting for the magic by reading this book.
