Review

The Grover McBane, Rescue Dog series is for junior readers aged 6–9 years. Based on the author’s own Border Collie dog, this first title, Grover Finds a Home, tells the story of a dog whose owner doesn’t take care of him. Grover is hungry, lonely and afraid when he escapes one stormy night. He is picked up by the local ranger, and taken to a shelter. I loved that the story was told in Grover’s voice. It is also educational as it explains what happens to animals who are rescued, including a vet check and Grover’s most hated thing – a bath! The story has a very happy ending and lots of funny parts, including conversations between dogs! Perfect for children who love animals, and anyone who enjoyed the Juliet, Nearly a Vet series.
