Overview

The Boy Who Returned from the Sea by Clay Morgan

The sequel to The Boy Who Spoke Dog.
 
A year ago, he was stolen from her—kidnapped by his own shipmates and taken out to sea. But because of her strange connection to him, Moxie the collie knows that her beloved human, Jack, has returned to Dog Island—and not a minute too soon. Food has become scarce for all the dogs of the island, and now their very lives hang in the balance. But Jack has not come alone. Blackburn Jukes, an evil and desperate crook, has come, too, and he has taken Jack prisoner. Moxie knows that without Jack the dogs will surely starve to death. She is determined to rescue him, but she can’t do it on her own. The courageous collie learns she needs to trust her instincts—and some unlikely allies—if she is to save Jack and the island she calls home.
 
“This sensitive story is both emotional and exciting. It convincingly conveys the unspoken bond that exists between people and their animal friends.” —Children’s Literature
