Publisher Comments:

For anyone who has ever wanted a puppy, the DOG DIARIES series tells a dog's story in a new way--from a dog's point of view! Focusing on a different breed for each book, starting with a Golden Retriever and a German Shepherd, these stories are based on true dog stories or on true-to-life situations. With realistic black-and-white illustrations by renowned illustrator Tim Jessel and an factual appendix, dog-loving early chapter book readers will beg for more!

Born in a puppy mill, Ginger the golden retriever looks back on her life and the various people who have "owned" her. Abruptly separated from her mother, littermates, and the wire cage that was her whole world, Ginger is shuttled from one harrowing situation to another until she finally escapes, living as an outlaw with a pack of wild dogs. But freedom doesn't feel so good once she becomes hungry and cold and sick. Will Ginger ever find a furever family to call her own?

Appendix features information about puppy mills, breed rescue groups, animal shelters, choosing a pet, and the history of golden retrievers.

Review:

"Ginger, a guileless and energetic golden retriever, shares her peripatetic story in this spirited and occasionally heavy-handed first book in the Dog Diaries series. Born in a puppy mill, Ginger is transported to a pet store and separated from her litter mates; a couple buys her as a Christmas gift for their toddler. After the tyke bangs Ginger's tail with a toy hammer, the puppy gives the boy's hand 'just the tiniest nip, enough to let him know not to try that again.' It's also enough to convince the boy's parents to take Ginger to an animal shelter. Following an ill-fated adoption, Ginger escapes and lives with a pack of wild dogs until a kindly man who rescues dogs takes her in. The novel has heart as well as a mission: in addition to Ginger's heart-tugging recounting of maltreatment and misunderstandings, Klimo (the Dragon Keepers series) includes none-too-subtle lectures from veterinarians and other dog-loving adults, and an appendix offers information about golden retrievers, puppy mills, animal shelters, and choosing a dog. Simultaneously available: Buddy. Final art not seen by PW. Ages 9 — 12." Publishers Weekly Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved.
