With cartoon capers and friendly dogs, welcome to PUPPY
ACADEMY: SCOUT AND THE SAUSAGE THIEF, first in a series
about pups training to be working dogs. Some of the dogs
want to be search and rescue dogs, or to guide blind
people. Young Scout is keen to be a police dog like her
German Shepherd parents. Her big ambition is to catch the
notorious sausage thief Frank Furter in the act.
Scout is a determined character who is caring enough to
help a child although it makes her late for class. She is
also too well-trained to talk back when she is unfairly
scolded. This combination means that on the day of her big
tests, she doesn't do as well as she'd hoped. In fact,
everyone is upset with her. What can she do to resolve the
issues? And will she ever live out that dream of nabbing
the villain Frank Furter?
The expressive pictures and interesting facts about police
dogs will keep young readers interested, while the tale may
help them learn some lessons. The broad spread of working
dogs means that the Puppy Academy series has plenty of
scope. Gill Lewis has been a veterinarian and lives in
England. Her first dog was a German Shepherd, just like
Scout. PUPPY ACADEMY: SCOUT AND THE SAUSAGE THIEF is a
lovely book for kids and will make many friends.
Puppies to the rescue! From animal expert Gill Lewis, Puppy Academy is a fun
new series introducing young readers to a team of plucky, irresistible puppies,
learning their jobs as working dogs. A must for animal-loving boys and girls
aged six to eight years. Scout is excited about the day ahead at the Sausage
Dreams Puppy Academy - because today she's taking her Care in the Community
test, an important step on her way to achieving her dream of becoming a police
dog. But a good deed goes wrong and suddenly Scout is left on her own while
her friends take the tests to get their badges. Can Scout put things right and
make up for her mistakes? And then there's the mysterious sausage thief who's at
large in Little Barking - if only Scout could find a way of catching him...
