Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Julia Beiker
Over 2000 years ago, an image of the Great Dane appeared on an old Greek coin and then 400 years ago Germans raised these dogs to hunt dangerous boars. Even though Great Danes grow up to be the tallest breed of dog, they start out as weak and easily injured puppies because their bones grow so quickly. This book also tells about Gibson and Hudson and how they help their owners in different ways. Heart shaped dog tags within the text provide young dog lovers with amazing facts—such as the clipping of Great Dane's ears to protect people from being harmed by boars. Action packed photographs and cartoon illustrations depict the real and make-believe world of the Great Dane including everyone's favorite detective, Scooby Doo. Utilize the glossary at the back of the book to learn the definition of unknown words that are bolded in the text. This book is part of the "Big Dogs Rule" series. Reviewer: Julia Beiker
