True story about Mogie who lives in a Ronald McDonald House. He knows when a kiddo needs him. He knows when to sit quietly beside the girl who is suffering an asthma attack or the boy who has just lost his sister. He knows when a child needs to play fetch or when a staff member needs a quick lick on the cheek. He has an innate knowing about being both a goofball and a warm companion. Mostly he is a best pal to whomever needs a best pal at that moment.

My granddaughter and I both loved his story, and I got a chance to tell her the incredibly moving story of what the Ronald McDonald House does for kids and their families so they can stay together.

Mogie the labradoodle is a "ball-chasing, tail-wagging, moon-howling pup." He's full of energy, but he doesn't have what it takes to be a show dog, a service dog, or a search-and-rescue dog. Mogie doesn't find his true calling until he visits a special house for sick children and meets Gage, a little boy who's lost his "mojo." With Mogie's support, Gage gets better and goes home, but Mogie stays to share his loving encouragement with other kids. Light, cheery illustrations and cozy rhymes create a feeling of comfort in this "gently told and optimistic tale" (Booklist), which was inspired by a true story.
