" I read this book twice, and I still don't understand its message. It's cute and all, but for a book that clearly has a message, I would think it'd be less ambiguous. " said.

" The way this book expresses that pets see us as god is weird and honest and fun. Also an interesting hint at the bigger questions 'why do we exist' and 'why do things happen.' " said.

" Sid is a grade-school kid whose dog just loves him to bits. Cute story about a dog's love for his boy.Good for pre-K to 1st. " said.

" An agnostic parable told through a boy and his dog. Can be a cute story or used as a teachable moments for parents to explain why they don't believe in God. " said.

" I found it impossible to accept the perspective the author gave to the child (and the dog) in this book--that the dog regarded the boy as infallible and someone to be worshipped and therefore worked to please him. Just seemed very strange to me... " said.

" Sid's dog Murphy thinks Sid is the King of Everything! He behaves because he knows he'll be rewarded, he doesn't misbehave because he knows he'll be punished. But what if he finds out that Sid is not King of Everything? Great little story about the mutual love between a boy and his dog. " said.

" At first I liked this book. It talked about how murphy thought his boy was in charge and how that affected him, and encouraged readers to think how belief in god might affect them. Then it pulled a 180 and suggested that maybe he was better off that way. That's where the book lost me. " said.

" Read for Librarian Book GroupWhen I read this book, it seemed a so-so effort about a boy and his dog. However, I totally missed the atheist message the author intended. So this is a children's book about atheism, but not an obvious children's book about atheism. " said.
