Star on Stormy Mountain by Gill Lewis - ADVISABLE

Lewis, Gill Star on Stormy Mountain (Puppy Academy #2).  128 pages. CHAPTER BOOK.  Henry Holt and Company (Macmillan), 2016.  $5.99.  Content: Language: G (0 swears) Mature Content: G  Violence: G.

This book is the second book in the Puppy Academy series.  Each book spotlights a puppy at Sausage Dreams Puppy Academy who is learning to become a working dog.  In this book, Star is a Border collie learning to be a sheepdog, like her award-winning mother.  However, she’s too fast and fails her tests.  Afraid of disappointing her mom and not becoming a sheepdog like her Star eventually discovers something that she’s good at.

Filled with lots of black and white illustrations, this book will appeal to any animal lovers out there.  I think readers will enjoy learning about how dogs are trained for different jobs.  There are also great lessons about failure and being your own person. 

EL (K-3) – ADVISABLE. Reviewer:  Nancy W.
