Eddie and Dog
Author/Illustrator: Alison Brown

So wait, the kid steals a dog from baggage claim at the airport and no one makes him even try to find its owner? Did his mom not know where he got it? Why is the kid allowed to hang out at an airport unattended? This book raises more questions than it answers.
I like everything else about this book except the setup. I just keep worrying about that poor family who had their dog stolen while travelling. How awful! No wonder the dog attaches himself to Eddie--his real home is probably thousands of miles away. Oh it's just too terrible.
