# 3 Spencer's New Pet
The book has three parts, and each piece narrates the boy’s love for the dog. But, the climax makes this book one of its kind, maybe not suited for young children. The illustrations bring you back to the days of the B&W movie. Check our full review by clicking on the book icon.
