Review: Do you like Dogs? Well do you also like history, and conflict? ? If so Stubby the War Dog by Ann Bausum is the book for you.
The book all starts with a little puppy lost in the streets of Connecticut until a soldier going to war picked him up, trains him, and brings him to camp. He even learns how to salute to his general. Then went on the cruiser to Europe to fight in WWI (even though dogs are not allowed.) when they get there he is appointed mascot of the legion. He is so brave he even kills rival soldiers. He gets shot in no mans land and waits patiently, but will Stubby heal?
Stubby the War Dog is very interesting and action packed. I recommend this book to readers from the age of 10 to 13. The characters were explained enough to understand their personality and actions. Even if you don't like history you will like Stubby. The book gets a 5 star rating because I like history and I like fast moving action packed books. With a mixture of history, conflict, and cuteness I was amazed how a dog from 100 years ago is still getting written about today, this is the book for you.
I highly recommend this book for people age 10-13. But I think that anyone can be satisfied while reading this book.
