Booktalk: Walter the ferry dog loved to greet cars as they came on board each morning. Fetching the captain’s newspaper and tasting the cook’s bacon were Walter’s other important jobs. Cupcake the Cat was just about the only thing Walter disliked about being a ferry dog. One rainy day the waves were rough and no one was paying much attention to Walter. Even worse, Cupcakes was poking him with her paw and playing tricks as Walter was being blamed. He decided it was time to leave the ferry!
One gray day the weather matched Walter’s mood. He was tired of rough waves and rainy decks. The passengers were staying inside to keep warm. They were talking, reading, working, and eating. No one seemed to need his help.
