Field trip by Gary paulsen and Jim paulsen ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ My expectations before reading field trip were kinda high because it a story about dogs and there was a rescue dog in it. I still feel the same because it was really good. One part has changed because it didn't go in depth that much. The main characters are Connor the dog Atticus the dogs and the dad.The setting is in a car and a house. The genre of this book is adventure . I liked this book because it was short and cute. I talked about rescue dogs and going on an adventure. This is a great book for kids age 10-12 if you want to read a quick short stort.
