"After the Japanese bombing of Pearl Harbor, 11-year-old Mitsi and her Japanese American family are forced to move to an internment camp, leaving their home -- and Mitsi's beloved dog, Dash -- behind. A neighbour agrees to foster Dash, and the letters that Mitsi receives "from Dash" give her courage despite the fear and hardships she faces during her family's imprisonment. For further heartwarming letters between a dog and a human who are separated by World War II, check out Duke, also by Kirby Lawson; for more stories of Japanese American internment camps, try Cynthia Kadohata's Weedflower."
