Stowaway! by Erin Soderberg -- ADVISABLE

Soderberg, Erin Stowaway (Puppy Pirates #1), illustrated by Russ Cox. Random House, 2015. $4.99. Content: G.

Wally dreams of a life of adventure, but when he decides to fulfill that dream by stowing away on a pirate ship, the other dogs on-board almost laugh him off the deck. How can this cheerful, resourceful, energetic, and very fluffy puppy convince the captain to let him join the crew?

With its frequent illustrations, short chapters, high-interest topics (puppies and pirates, anyone?), quick pace, and slightly larger font, this 85-page story is perfect for students who are just beginning to read chapter books.
