War Dog

About The Book

In his debut novel for young readers, Martin Booth shares the origins of military dogs through the tale of a brave black Labrador that was claimed as an infantry patrol dog in World War II.

Jet was a well-trained black Labrador who belonged to a young English poacher, Fred Parry. When Fred is caught and jailed before the outbreak of World War II, Jet is requisitioned by the army, where her training stands her in good stead.

A charming and sweet tale, War Dog is a fast-paced story about a remarkable dog your young reader will surely come to love.
