from the publisher: WHITE STAR by marty crisp

Dog Reads is a blog that features children’s books with key dog characters. Sometimes an adult dog book sneaks in but for the most part Dog Reads aims to help kids, their parents, teachers, and librarians find dog books.

From the publisher:

A simply-told, poignant tale of friendship and survival, set on history’s most famous doomed ship!

The year is 1912, and twelve-year-old Sam Harris is traveling from England to America on the grand ship theTitanic. Sam is lonely at first, but is soon delighted to discover that there are dogs aboard! When Sam volunteers to help out in the kennel, he meets Star, a spunky Irish setter that belongs to the ship’s captain. Sam and Star become fast friends, and when disaster strikes, the boy and dog must rely on each other more than ever before. The harrowing, breathless conclusion — and fascinating historical information — makes this boy-and-dog tale truly unforgettable.
