Summary
"Norman, Speak! tells the comical yet thought-provoking story of a boy and his family who adopt a dog that just can't seem to learn the things other dogs do. Overwhelmed by dogs in need at their local animal shelter, a young boy chooses Norman, the stray that's been there the longest. But, upon bringing him home, the family quickly learns that Norman won't respond to commands. He doesn't even know his own name. During a chance encounter with another dog owner in the park, the family is very surprised to learn the reason for Norman's confusion; he "speaks" Chinese instead of English! And so the fam enrolls in a language class, determined to understand their uniquely loveable pet."--Provided by publisher
