In order to distract FX, who tends to worry and asks too many impossible questions, his parents buy him a dog. What could be better for an eight-year-old boy than to enjoy life, play in the snow, and build a fort with his best friend? The author convincingly captures the language and psychology of the characters, and the relevance and subtlety of the dialogue is sure to amuse adults.
