Oliver and Company by Jan CarrOliver & Company was one of my favourite animated films growing up (cmon, it had soundtrack by Huey Lewis & the News and Billy Joel, and beautiful scenic shots of a 1980s New York, whats not to love?). I never had any idea it was loosely adapted from Oliver Twist until I was older, which sort of added to its charm. As a movie novel, its actually not half-bad. Targeted towards preteen readers, this book gets the basic gist of the film across and the messages of friendship and loyalty. Its lacking in the same upbeat urban atmosphere that the film had, but still retains the personality of each character and the scenic New York landmarks.
Oliver, a young kitten abandoned after his brothers and sisters are adopted, tries to maneuver his way through the Big Apple where he befriends a street-smart dog with a nonchalant attitude, along with his hobo owner and gang of other canine pals. For Oliver he enjoys this new arrangement, finally beginning to feel like hes part of a real family. Poverty doesnt matter when you have companionship. But when a little rich girl takes an interest in adopting him (much to the annoyance of her prissy pet poodle, Georgette) and the mafia gets involved with Fagen, Olivers current owner, things really start to get exciting. This book isnt perfect but its a fun and nostalgic story that can appeal to both kids and adults alike.

The song is a wonderfully upbeat way to introduce the street-wise dog from New York City. It is played when Dodger is trying to escape with some hot dogs from Oliver , which he stole from a hot dog vendor named Old Louie with the help of Oliver. At the end of the film, the song is sung by Dodger again; only this time with the entire gang singing along. The reprise song is played when the gang is heading back home with Fagin after celebrating Jenny 's eighth birthday and saying their good-byes to Oliver, who now lives with Jenny in his new home. Why should I care? I may not have a dime But I got street savoir-faire Why should I worry?
