Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
Praise for Lost! A Dog Called Bear:

“The story will thus appeal to fans of pet fiction as well as those who love happy endings to sad stories.” —BCCB

“The believable plot and inherent suspense will keep readers turning the pages of this fine addition to early chapter books.” —Kirkus Reviews

“Orr has a way with words and dialogue that brings this story to life. . . . A promising start for the Rainbow Street Shelter series.” —Booklist

Praise for Mokie & Bik:

“A wonderful stupendously blunderful read aloud: full of delicious word play that will delight listeners, with art reminiscent of Edward Ardizzone.” —Ellen Fader, Youth Services Coordinator, Multnomah County Library and ALSC Immediate Past President

“This set of splishy-splashy episodes will itself draw waggles from easy-reader graduates and read-aloud audiences in general.” —Kirkus Reviews

“Orr’s colorful use of language brings energy to the story. The many crosshatch drawings are often graceful and always appealing. A lively, unusual choice for young readers.” —School Library Journal

Read an Excerpt

1

 

The stables on the hill were shadowed and quiet in the moonlight. As the two men in dark clothes crept down the long hall, they could smell the warm scent of clean horses and fresh hay.

“Go right to the end,” whispered the leader.

They snuck into the last stall, where Pebbles was sleeping. She was short and stocky, silvery white with some darker gray dapples across her rump. Her eyes were soft and brown in her pretty face.

“That’s not a racehorse!” the smaller thief snarled. “We’re in the wrong stall!”

A tall black stallion sprang to his feet. The men heard his hooves strike the floor. They felt the rush of his powerful body, and now that their eyes were used to the darkness, they saw his shape.

That’s Midnight!” exclaimed the boss thief. Before the stallion knew what was happening, a rope had been thrown around his neck and looped over his nose into a halter.

The horse’s eyes rolled white with fear and rage. He jerked back and reared, his strong front legs slashing the air. The thief holding the halter was thrown into the corner of the stall. He rolled out of the way just as Midnight’s hooves thudded down.

“Forget it!” the smaller man screamed. “I’m not going to get killed just to steal a horse!”

“Be quiet!” said the boss thief. He opened the stall door and pushed the other man out.

The stallion pawed the floor, snorting in alarm.

The thief ignored him. He rubbed the silver mare between her ears and breathed gently into her nostrils.

“What are you doing?” the smaller man demanded. “That’s not the one we want!”

“I’m guessing this big guy doesn’t go anywhere without his little friend. And when you’re worth as much as he is, what you want is what you get.”

The boss slipped a rope halter over Pebbles’s head.
