But, the part where Tango went in to fight Malachi, I thought he was gonna die for sure. The part where Tango had his identification tag and Augusta saw it, I began It was a great, kinda sad, book.
The part where Tango had his identification tag and Augusta saw it, I began to cry because I felt bad because Augusta and Mckenna and Burea grew attached to him. And the part where Tango looked into the candles flame and saw Marcellina and Diego with other dogs to replace Tango made me feel sad for him and it made me feel happy because he went out and buried his identification tag so they couldn't return him.
I thought the end was really sweet because Augusta adopted Mckenna and they raised Tango and Tango and Mckenna and Nigel, and Burea findly found a place they could call home. Shelves: adoption-fostering , animal-fiction , childrens-fiction , puppy-pals , foxy-foxes.
e-book Tales of Dog Island: Lovers
Tango led a charmed life with his Manhattan socialite owner, Marcellina, enjoying every luxury imaginable, from a silver collar to a pearl-studded leash. But when the little Yorkshire terrier is washed overboard during a yachting trip, he eventually finds himself on Canada's Prince Edward Island, where a new life awaits him. Taken in by the widowed Augusta - known to the locals as Miss Gustie - Tango is determined to return to his old life, but unsure of how to do so. Meanwhile, there are other Tango led a charmed life with his Manhattan socialite owner, Marcellina, enjoying every luxury imaginable, from a silver collar to a pearl-studded leash.
Meanwhile, there are other newcomers in the village of Victoria-by-the-Sea, from orphaned twelve-year-old McKenna Skye, on the run from an abusive foster-care home, to the mysterious Beau Fox, an elderly vulpine figure who has watched over McKenna since she was an infant. Added to the mix are Nigel the three-legged cat, a friendless feline who has taken up with a sinister gang of cats living in an abandoned house, and Malachi the mad rat, driven insane by human experimentation, and darkly plotting his revenge against the world.
All their stories collide, as Tango embarks on a journey of discovery, in which he learns just where he belongs Published in , Tango is author Eileen Beha's debut novel for children. It offers a fairly engaging tale, one populated by a number of interesting characters, both animal and human.

That said, I sometimes felt that not all of the characters' stories worked well together, and that the narrative focus was too divided. As someone with an interest in the figure of the fox in children's literature - I tracked down a copy of the book specifically because it contained the character of Beau Fox - it probably isn't surprising that I enjoyed the story of Beau's faithful devotion to McKenna the best, out of all the various narrative strands in the book.
I also appreciated the guidance Beau offered to his canine cousin, Tango, and thought that these two story strands - Tango's involuntary adoption by Miss Gustie, and McKenna's search for a true home - worked together very well, both thematically and structurally. The story strands involving Nigel and the other cats who live in Pitiful Place, and Malachi the deranged rat, on the other hand, seemed unnecessary, and sometimes even a little distasteful. Beha didn't really devote enough time to fully exploring the issues raised by Nigel's character flaws - he has a conscience, but has trouble following it - or by the implicit human betrayal of animalkind that created a place such as Pitiful Place, and its residents.
Nigel himself reflects, at one point, that no one took him in - a cat injured by human traps - when he needed help, but Beha never raises the matter again. By the same token, Malachi is meant to be the sole survivor of some kind of experiment as well as a later purge of the rodents taken in by Old Ada Phillips , but the significance of this fact and its potential power as a means of provoking reflection is mostly lost, given the relatively little attention the character is given, in the narrative.
Never fully explored, these characters and their stories feel like nothing so much as an intrusion upon the 'real' tale of Tango, Miss Gustie, McKenna and Beau. Still, despite these flaws, I did enjoy the book, both as an animal story and as an orphan tale. The latter struck me as particularly appropriate, given that Prince Edward Island's most famous daughter, the author L. Montgomery, was renowned for her tales of orphans finding a home May 24, Dayza Champion rated it liked it.
View 2 comments. I'm a sucker for a dog story, and this one is delightfully unusual. Four paws up for this wonderful first-time author who pulled off a tale of talking animals, with multiple points of view. Mar 03, Milana Waller rated it it was ok. Jul 19, Stephanie A. Cute enough, but is it really animal literature when your animals talk and behave exactly like humans in little fur suits? Oct 14, Kati Beadle rated it really liked it.

This is a story about a yorkie puppy who got adopted by a rich couple and had lots of charms on his silver and dimond collar. His owners got married and bought a boat to take on their honeymoon.
They didn't know it was going to storm. Tango the dog went over board and was washed up onto the shore of some island. It wasn't deserted though it was like a small independent town. A girl found him and saved him and he now lived with a girl named McKenna. McKenna took care of Tango and made him her own. Her family owned a candle shop called Enchanted Candles and she worked there. Tango was mostly there, but sometimes he would wander off and get into trouble. He wasn't the smartest when it came to island smarts, though.
He climed a light tower and found a big scary rat. His friends told him to stay away from the rat and the tower, but as you could have suspected, he didn't listen. He went back to the tower and was challenged. He was challenged to to a fight.

Though in my opinion neither did the rat. Now Tango lay there in pain with no one there to help him. His friends came and got him and dragged him to McKenna and McKenna was terrified. She had thought that the rodents who were Tango's friends had hurt Tango. She shood them away and got Tango. McKenna started crying because she thought Tango had died. Tango lifted his head and she was thrilled but still sad because he was severely injured. She took him to the island vet and the vet said it didn't look good. McKenna was sad, but the vet said he would do the best he could to save him.
He saved Tango and instaid to getting back to his original owner, Marcellina, whom he loved, he stayed ont the island with McKenna and his new friends, who he loved even more.
