Gale, Eric Kahn The Wizard’s Dog, 280 pages. Crown (Random), 2017. $17. Content: G (some danger).
Nosewise is a wizard’s dog, but he is not allowed in the room where all of the magic training goes on. Working through the apprentice, Morgana, he worms his way in and finds the Asteria, a devise that will actually let him talk! Besides talking, however, Nosewise will have to find the power within him to work magic spells if he wants to save Merlin after he is betrayed by his own apprentice.
Nosewise is adorable and hilarious! You can’t stop yourself from rooting for him all along the way.
