Chester is a chocolate lab and Gus is a ten year old boy with
non-verbal autism whose family hopes he will be more interactive at school with
Chester around. Although he failed the official dog service test due to his fear of
loud noises, the dog is incredibly perceptive and seems to know what Gus needs
and is always attentive to his boy. Recognizing Gus’s struggles to be understood
by his parents, teacher, and classmates, Chester becomes able to interpret the boy’s misunderstood behaviors. Told from the dog’s perspective, this book is an
inspiring story of the amazing bond of animal and human.
