Anna B. Moyer's "Her Name is Sophia" is ambitious for a cute illustrated children's book about the eponymous Wire Fox Terrier's origin and itch for travel.
Young readers will certainly enjoy a world reintroduced from the perspective of their furry friends. Grown-up readers may smile at seeing themselves in the metaphorical connotation of an invisible fence and a heart longing for adventure.
However, the book seems to rely more on this metaphor than a coherent storytelling, resulting in a slightly problematic coexistence of personification and reality. With that said, it's still an enjoyable family reader. So, why not befriend Sophia and read the story for yourself?
