The Hero Pup
One boy’s lonely Christmas without his dad is saved by this cuddly pup: a hero and true friend. Joe is dreading his first Christmas without Dad – killed abroad while serving in the army. Joe’s life feels empty, until Mum has a brilliant idea. They could adopt a Helper Dog, training it to assist someone in need. Joe has always wanted a dog. When he meets Patch, it’s love at first sight. Can Patch go from playful pup to hero – and mend Joe’s broken heart along the way? The perfect animal story for the winter holidays: great if you love Holly Webb or Michael Morpurgo.
