Planet of the Dogs

Author: Robert J. McCarty

First line: Our story begins long, long ago, before there were dogs on Planet Earth.

Why you should read this book: When the Stone City warriors overstep their boundaries and decide to make war on the peaceful farmers of Green Valley, the denizens of the Planet of the Dogs decide to lend their paws to the cause of peace. Beginning with two lucky children, they begin to share their message of love and loyalty with the people of earth, eventually even overcoming the Stone City warriors' greed and ambition. A short, simplistic, moral tale, which reads like the serial bedtime story told by an ambitious father to his canine-loving kids.

Why you shouldn't read this book: You're a cat person.

Thanks for reviewing Planet Of The Dogs.
We have been told that cat lovers have also enjoyed the book.
We hope you will also be able to read it to children and let us know their reaction.
Best wishes,
Robert and Stella
