Professor Watkins is an inventor. A genius, really. He’s created a wonderful device. It’s a collar that, when he wears it, he can understand and communicate with his dogs. I have to admit, there are times when I wish I had one so I could understand my dog’s barking. The professor’s two dogs, Everest and Bailey, are both rescues, and very grateful to the professor for giving them a forever home. But when word gets out that the professor has created this marvelous new communication device, there is evil at play and, in the process, Everest is dognapped and Bailey must round up the neighborhood dog-force to go to his rescue.
Sit down and enjoy the rollicking fun of a neighborhood paw-force in Gary McConville’s early reader mystery, Paw Power – Mission Saving Everest (Paw Power Series). Inspired in part by his own rescue dog, also Bailey, and with plot and character inspiration from his son, Riley, the story will appeal to youngsters learning to read. The characters, both dog and human, are well developed and the dogs especially are lovable. The plot develops with excitement and drama leading to a powerful conclusion that will have readers wanting to learn more about this unique dog-force (or paw-force). Everyone will be sitting on the edge of their seats, wondering if Everest will be found and freed from the evil dog-nappers. And there are a few chuckles along the way as the reader will enjoy the unique characteristics of the two main dog characters: Everest and Bailey. Looking forward to the next great paw power adventure!
