Review

Told through the eyes of Jamie, an amputee veteran, War Dog is the story of Lance Corporal Sam Maguire, part of a bomb disposal squad in Afghanistan, and the springer spaniel sniffer dog Charlie who becomes his best friend.

A gritty and gripping short story with a heart-rending twist for older primary children. This tale will stay in your mind, long after you've finished reading it.
