When you think of war heroes, you may not automatically picture man's best friend, but military working dogs have made huge contributions to military efforts for centuries. In our newest middle grade historical fiction novel from Alison Hart we meet Darling, the beloved pet of Robert and Katherine, who spends her days finding mischief at home in England. When the Great War begins, Darling must join the war effort. After training, she becomes a mercy dog to find wounded soldiers in the field and bring them to safety.
This first adventure in the Dog Chronicles series will give readers a great look at what military life was like during World War I, for the human soldiers and mercy dogs alike, with lots of action and plenty of heart, too!
