Today’s recommend read is: Strongheart: Wonder Dog of the Silver Screen by Candace Fleming.
A German shepherd is transformed from Etzel, a police dog in Berlin, to Strongheart, a silent movie star that will need his best acting skills to prove himself innocent of attacking a girl.
Readers who love animals will be interested in this book based on the true story of the German Shepard dog, Strongheart, who was a silent film star in the 1920s. The illustrations throughout are charming and the inclusion of back-matter with photographs of the dog and explanations of which sections are facts and which are embellished should help satisfy the curiosity of young readers.
You can find Strongheart: Wonder Dog of the Silver Screen in the Juvenile Fiction section at J FLEMING.
