The Lovereading4Kids comment

Grk, the loveable doggy star of four previous adventures, is back with a thirst for something new. A great boys-own read, with no magic, no fairies but plenty of fast-paced action. Now in Delhi for a tennis championship, Grk and his owner Tim are sold a dud copy of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows. Soon they are caught up trying to break the grip of a nasty criminal racket which involves making hundreds of children work as slaves. There’s danger at every turn but Tim and Grk are brave and determined and the story of their adventure is a terrific read. Other grk books include Grk and the Pelotti Gang, A Dog Called Grk, and Grk and the Hot Dog Trail.

Synopsis

Grk Smells A Rat by Joshua Doder

India is the country of curry, chutney, tigers, the Taj Mahal... and the blue rat gang. In Delhi, hundreds of children have been enslaved. Will no one help them? One person does. And one dog too. On trains and rickshaws, travelling from slums to palaces, Tim and Grk plunge into the heart of India for the most exciting adventure of their lives.
