Y heart to see Jet be a companion to all the people serving in the war and follow them as they go through tough times in the war It s a good book about friendship and how it will never nd It was an amazing book about dogs in the war These are my favorite kind of books A great book for middle grade readers about WW2 without the details of gore and horror in war books for older readers I think both boys and girls alike would really get into this with the fighting action and of course the heroics of Jet the War DogA word of caution some adult guidance would be needed to xplain some of the terms used during the 1940 s Some of the military words would be unfamiliar to younger readers and some terms such as the one used for a female dog would need to be xplained for readers who had only heard it used in a derogatory context WarDogByMartin BoothSo this review is for the book WarDog By Martin Booth the grade level is 7 9 This book is about how dogs in the military came to be it tells a story about a black labrador who is off to serve her country in WW2 And her journey through all the chaos of warThe central idea I think is about love and how such a little thing as a dog can make a difference on how you do things and what you would do for that dog or animal There are some things in the book that shows. Ed shortly before the outbreak of World War II Jet is reuisitioned by the army where her training stands.
This story shows the true meaning of love for a dog and from a dog It shows that animals are smarted then we think thaey are and that they will follow you anywhere if you give them a loving hand Cute kids book written from both the Dog s and person s perspective Makes it clear that there is a cost for war I spotted War Dog when I was doing our annual library inventory I don t know how I missed reading this treasure before now It is worth than a five star rating It reminds me of Michael Morpurgo s War Horse though the black Labrador Jet doesn t relate the story in his own voiceIt is a great Le valeureux guerrier example of historical fiction The story is very realistic I m usually not a fan of war stories but Martin Booth has captured thessence of war and the heart of the people and animals who Snowflakes on the Sea endure the conseuences I m an avid reader so it is saying a lot when I suggest that this book will be added to my list of favorites I wasnthralled from cover to cover I have not finished reading the ntire book but so far this is the most interesting book i have read about a dog Obviously the main character is the dog Jet Throughout the book her name changes from Jet to Bess to J I think this a beautiful book about a dog who works in the military it s heartwarming to see a dog be brave and save the day at times It melts Jet a black Labrador was well trained by a young English poacher Fred Parry When Fred is caught and jail.
This very well Like when Fred joined the army just to find Jet and to be with her for one last time It also reveals how much Fred loves Jet and cares for her Another incident is when Turpin and Jet got back from Dunkirk Turpin was injured but wanted Jet to be helped first and treated because Jet got some metal in her skinI really njoyed this book because it had a great plot and good twist and turns I could understand this book pretty good it would be perfect for the grades it list and maybe ven a little older or younger depending on maturity Like most books it has a happy nding with verything nding good so it was sorta predictable but it was still a very good story I would recomend this book to people who likes dogs and doesn t mind to much gore because there really isn t any in the book but it is talking about war Heart stirring a heroine to want the best for amidst the inhumanity of war My Full Review This was one of my favorite books when I was a kid The story is great following around a well trained black lab as she assists her soldiertrainer in a few different war canine functions There s just Humanism: The Greek Ideal and its Survival enough grit blood and death to make it clear there s a real war going in but it s lightnough that it won t give children nightmares What it will give children is a fierce desire for a good dog. Her in good stead This is the fast paced story about a remarkable dog whom the reader soon comes to lov.
