True Stories of Heroic Hounds

This title would make an ideal gift for a child who loves canines. It includes engagingly illustrated stories of real and amazing dogs. The book is divided into sections including Incredible Journeys; Hero Dogs; Extraordinary Dogs; and Talented Dogs. There are also sections on caring for dogs and on further reading.
For example, in the section on Incredible Journeys, children can learn about Bells and Strelka who traveled in space. The hero section includes Ajax who saved lives by detecting a hidden bomb. Each entry is short and well-written. Again, I love the illustrations.
Many thanks to NetGalley and the publisher for this title. All opinions are my own.
