The Lovereading4Kids comment

Joint winner of the Richard and Judy "Developing" 7+ category. Bound to keep your 5 -7 year olds enthralled. Spy Dog is well written, and straightforward to read. Lara is the canine that was bred by the British Secret Service for use on dangerous missions around the world. Woof woof! This book will make even the most reluctant reader desperate to find out what happens next. The comedy is pitched at a level that both children and adults will enjoy.


Spy Dog by Andrew Cope

Lara, or GM451 as she is known by the government, is a highly trained special agent, bred
by the British Secret Service for use on dangerous missions around the world. But her last
mission went wrong and now she is being hunted down by an evil drugs baron, Mr Big.
Lara must go undercover as a normal dog, 'choose' a family to look after her and await her
retrieval by the Secret Service. But can she keep her true identity a secret? Can she thwart
the plans of Mr Big? And can she bear to return to government service, after weeks of cosy
domestic bliss? After an exciting struggle, Mr. Big is captured and Lara finds a way to stay
with her family. But her spying days aren't over completely...
