‘The Island Dog Squad’ by Deb McEwan
This is a wonderful book by the very talented Deb McEwan. Take a peek at our mini video review.
The Island Dog Squad was Book 25
in our 2018 Goodreads Challenge
This is a story for dog lovers both young and old. But be warned as well as it being comical, at times it is also rather heart-wrenching too. Probably advisable for readers 10+
The author’s own dog Sandy is a rescued dog, and the inspiration behind the book. The tale is told from the dog’s point of view.
After almost drowning as a pup, Sandy is initially rescued by military personnel. She proves to be a very intelligent little dog and undergoes training on the base. Sadly the poor dog ends up having some horrendous experiences. Sandy ends up on the streets almost at deaths door; she has no memory of who she is or where she came from.
Luckily Sandy is found and taken to a rescue shelter, and from there she is adopted by Ellie and Ben. She loves her people parents and just wants to settle into a new life with them. However, she begins to suffer nightmares and slowly her memories begin to return but they are not pleasant.
I love how the author interweaves mystery and intrigue into a captivating tale, along with a dog’s eye view of the world. Sandy’s thoughts on her people parents are simply adorable, particularly when she begins to learn more about them. Here is just one of her thoughts:-
‘I was to discover Ellie was a vegivore and a chocivore.’
Such great fun and very highly recommended.
As a special treat I recommend you visit Deb’s website and check out the real Sandy’s Dog Blog. Click HERE
