    This was an interesting retelling of an event in the author's life on how he came to get Shep although retold by the viewpoint of Shep himself. Given to the goal of making this book one for children the usage of language reflects on very easy and somewhat childish in its usage so the adult reader may not feel too comfortably in their reading. As for children the writing is easy enough to follow and understand so the story won't be too difficult to consume. They may have a bit of a problem understanding the hitting of the dog's head and teeth since that just seems a weird way of putting things altogether to begin with. Definitely an interesting take of point but one that I wouldn't think about reading to my children, especially before bed since who wants to dream about not being wanted and being thrown out in the snow. Although the end turns out to be good it just doesn't seem bedtimish for me.

    This is a very good, well-written little bedtime — or anytime — story for kids and grownups, too. It subtly gives a little lesson on treating one another well and the happiness that envelops all when we do that. The little pictures of Shep in the book are cute.

    "A Great Bedtime Story for Kids"This is a good bedtime story to read to children. It's very short, but just the right length for small children. Puppy Shep's first owners were Angry People -- angry with themselves and angry with Shep who always bumped his large head into them. They pushed Shep outside even at night in stormy weather. Where was the warm bed and loving master? The dog down the street, Ruby Girl, has a great home with Nice People. The Nice People, however, can only have one dog, but they did find a home for Shep with a Lonely Man who likes dogs. Living with Lonely Man, Shep has a warm bed, goes on long mountain walks, plays Frisbee, and even visits Ruby Girl. Soon, Lonely Man becomes Happy Man. Both Shep and Ruby Girl grow into large dogs and are well mannered. There is one good deed that Shep does that makes the Angry People wish they had kept him. This is a very short story, but read it to your children ... because, it's also a true story! As an added bonus, the author has a website where children can draw pictures of the characters and dogs of this story - He also provides several chapters from his remarkable book, "The Little Universe" which is very interesting as to the creativity of a universe, evolution vs creation, and alien contact. Of course ... this is for adults with expandable thoughts.

    I received a free kindle copy of Shep Dreams of Home by Jason Matthews from Amazon for fair review. This is a simple but hopeful, bedtime story. Every one (dogs included) want a home. I gave it four stars.Shep was a clumsy puppy & had a big head with long teeth. He lived with the Angry People who didn't like it when he bumped them. They put him outside in the dark cold night.He wanders down the street & meets Ruby. They become friends. He tries to fit in with Ruby's family & not bump them with his big head, but they can have only one dog. They introduce him to The Lonely Man. They befriend each other & Shep even gets to sleep in the warm bed with the Lonely Man. After Shep came to live with him, the Lonely Man became the Happy Man.He & Ruby catch a Food Burglar at Ruby's home where they were having a party. The people realize the man is just hungry & invites him in to eat with them. This is a feel good story & Link to purchase:

    What a great ebook sharing Shep ' s beginning in life and from bad to a swell home!I enjoyed this story of Shep ' s life from a bad home as a puppy to a wonderful and happy home life, no more angry people in his life and now a contented dog with a not so lonely puppy to a grown up dog now. So, for these reasons and a great short story, here is my honest review in return for a free ebook copy. That I wish to recommend for kids ages 3-10 &+ for anyone who enjoys sweet short but very good storyline. Super job Jason! By Angela L .

    I was very happy that Shep, a mixed-breed puppy, found a home with a caring man instead of the family that mistreated and ignored him, in this true story.However, I was a little concerned about Shep's rather obese state in the cover photo. Obesity can be just as dangerous to pets' health as humans'.

    Fue muy lindo y dulce. Me imaginaba a mi mismo o a alguien mas leyendoselo a unos niños e incluso haciendo diferentes voces. Estaria muy bien para un picture-book o un corto animado.Por cierto me encanto que estuviera "inspirado" en hechos reales aunque siento algo extraño sabiendo que Shep puede que ya no este vivo :/

    Un cuento extremadamente corto, de solo unas pocas páginas pero cargado de ternura y de una verdad absoluta: Los animales son compañía, son amor y rescatados son lo más agradecido que hay. Me ha encantado esta historia y más aún cuando leí la biografía del autor, solo le tengo una pequeña crítica: fue muy corto!!!!! me hubiera gustado alguna aventura más de Shep.

    ok I'm confused. The words are too big for a first reader, but it's written in an annoying simplistic style. A couple of scary things for a bedtime story, too! Funny typo: "The Happy Man took Shep home and made him a very special desert."

    This was an okay story. Definitely meant to be a kids tale, I think. It wasn't terribly original, but it was cute. Not sure I'd recommend it, but if you like animals and kids stories, go for it. It's not bad, just not for me.

    ShortI chose this rating because I think this book was very short and I usually like to read longer books. I like this book but like I said very short.

    Very simplistic children's story. The writing style seems rushed and reads more like a reminiscent thought rather than a actual story.
