A Julia Eccleshare Pick of the Month January 2018

Award- winning Megan Rix has a rare gift for putting dogs at the centre of important moments in history. Here, in a story set in 1910, Alfie and his dog Rascal play a leading role in the battle to get women the vote. Alfie is the ward of Emmeline Pankhurst, the leader of the Suffragettes. When he rescues the cute little puppy Rascal after he has been abandoned on the street, the two of them take on the dangerous and exciting job of delivering messages for the suffragettes. It’s a roller-coaster adventure told with warmth and a true understanding of the special role a dog can play. ~ Julia Eccleshare

Synopsis

Emmeline and the Plucky Pup by Megan Rix

Meet the leader of the Suffragettes, Emmeline Pankhurst, and a particularly plucky pup, during a momentous time in history!Alfie can't believe his luck when he is allowed to keep a tiny puppy he finds abandoned on the street. Rascal is cute as a button and has lots of attitude, and Emmeline Pankhurst is thrilled that her ward Alfie has a new friend. Alfie and Rascal deliver messages between the Suffragettes as they organise their 'Votes for Women' campaign. But it's sometimes dangerous work, and it's not long before Alfie and Rascal find out the true cost of the fight.

Full of adventure, fascinating history and lovely animals, this is the perfect read for young fans of Dick King-Smith and Michael Morpurgo.
