Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Allison Fetters
Drover, a rather cowardly pup, has the best of intentions when he expresses his desire to stay home with his mother rather than venturing out into the big ol' world by himself. Unfortunately for Drover, all of his brothers and sisters have set the bar high by forging their own way and securing jobs as yard dog, lap dog, guard dog, etc. Forced to find his own place in life, Drover begins his adventure. Not long after the journey begins, Drover rescues a strange-looking bird from drowning. The so-called bird turns out to be a spunky bat named Boris O'Bat. Boris, a native of Austin, Texas, is a bit lost himself but only because he refuses to wear the glasses needed for him to be able to see. Boris motivates Drover to go after his dreams rather than hiding behind his fears. Together, the unconventional duo escapes a couple of close calls, but ultimately, they find their own way. This delightful chapter book is entertaining and contains unexpected lessons for Drover to learn as he figures life out on his own. The reader experiences Drover's fears, dreams, and accomplishments through Drover's first person narrative and quickly warms to this likeable canine. This book is a valuable addition to the early reader's library. Reviewer: Allison Fetters
