Angus is black and white and strong.

Sadie is reddish brown and white and small.

"They don't look much alike," says Missus.

"They don't act much alike," says Mister.

Angus and Sadie are brother and sister. Angus is bigger. He is a good, brave, and clever dog -- and he likes that. Sadie isn't as quick to learn -- or to obey. When cats jump at her, she yelps and runs away. Angus thinks that means she's scared of everything. But Sadie isn't so sure that's true.

Newbery Medalist Cynthia Voigt's story of border collie puppies growing up on a farm in Maine is for animal lovers of all ages, and for anyone who's ever had -- or wondered what it would be like to have -- a brother or sister just like themselves, but very, very different.

A farm couple in Maine decide that they need a dog and end up with a brother and sister border collie and shepherd mix from the animal shelter. Though they are siblings, the two are very different. Angus is strong and outgoing and eventually become the leader. Sadie is reserved, smaller, and proves herself when she rescues a stray sheep. The two dogs are very different, but they come to respect and love one another.I thought that this would be a great story for students who love dogs. It has a good moral to it.I would have students think of ways that they may be different from their friends and why being different is important and something to be cherished. I would have students brainstorm ways that their differences make them stronger.more
When Mister and Missus decide they would like a dog to share their work and daily lives on the farm, and visit the local animal shelter to pick out a puppy, they get more than the bargained for. Litter mates, the newly dubbed Angus and Sadie, border collie mixes, quickly prove that they may be brother and sister, but they aren't carbon copies. Voight has done a good job of capturing the dogs' voices and the differences in their talents and personalities while letting them remain dogs. Leigh's illustrations add just the right touch.more
