Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Marilyn Courtot
A Lassie story set in the Pacific Northwest instead of Scotland, K�vik the sled dog is part wolf and part malamute. His owner recognizes his great strength and courage and uses him to win a major sled race. After his success, K�vik is sold to a rich man who wants to fly his winning dog to Seattle. The plane crashes and the dog is rescued and cared for by a young boy named Andy. He is returned to his rightful owner, but K�vik is not happy. The rest of the story deals with K�vik's struggle to escape from Seattle and return to the boy he loves. Told from K�vik's perspective, it is an exciting narrative of courage, perseverance, and love. 1997 (orig.
