“Haatchi & Little B,” written by Wendy Holden, is a twist of heartwarming and gut-wrenching. Holden begins by introducing readers to the saddening story of Haatchi — an Anatolian Shephard who began his life misguided by humans. Haatchi’s fate appears dismal. That is, until he is introduced to Little B, a young boy with a rare genetic disorder called Schwartz Jampel Syndrome. Little B experiences physical limitations that negatively impact his independence, comfortability, and sense of self.
While the story of Haatchi initially invites feelings of upset and fury, readers experience firsthand how a twist of fate, dependability, relatability, trust, and unconditional love brighten the future for both Haatchi & Little B. This story is nothing short of remarkable and is a tail-wagging good read about the unbreakable bond between a boy and his dog!
