Stubby the Dog Soldier: World War I Hero by Blake Hoena Illustrated by Oliver Hurst - - ADVISABLE

Hoena, Blake Illustrated by Oliver Hurst Stubby the Dog Soldier: World War I Hero, 32 pgs. Capstone,  2014. $14.95. PICTURE BOOK  

When an American soldier befriends a stray dog during basic training, the dog, called “Stubby” because of his short tail, learns to be a soldier and becomes a valuable asset in the trenches of France during WWI.  

This true story is beautifully illustrated and well told in short one or two sentence descriptions on each page.  The illustrations tell much of the story.  The history lover and dog lover alike will enjoy this one.
