عندما سرقت العظمة المضحكة في مدينة دبلن من قِبَل كلب الكآبة الأسود، يقرروا اولاد المدينة ملاحقة الكلب والقضاء عليه. كنت متوقع من بداية قراءتي أنه لن يبهرني الكتاب بحكم انه كتاب مخصص للاطفال. ولكن للأسف لم اجد شيئا مميزا لأعطيه تقييم مرتفع سوى فكرة الكتاب وهو التحدث عن الاكتئاب وبيان مدى تأثيره على ال Leggi tutto
After I discovered that Roddy Doyle had written a children’s book and that he would be tackling the subject of depression, I was really keen to read it.

Super cute story for kids about "The Black Dog of Depression". It was repetitive in some places, but that is my only real gripe.
