The Lovereading4Kids comment
Megan Rix adds a new title to her much-loved stories about the bravery of animals in extreme situations. Set in the First World War, this tells the story of a very special friendship between a dog and a cat. Sammy is a rescue puppy and Mouser is a fearsomely brave grey tabby cat. Like other animals at the time, the two are sent out from England to the trenches where they are in the front line of the action. Together, and making more friends wherever they go, Sammy and Mouser endure the hardship of the constant gun fire. How the two survive is an exciting and touching story.
A Soldier's Friend by Megan Rix
Sammy is a football crazy rescue puppy. Mouser is a fearless grey tabby. Together they make an unlikely pair that won't be parted, not even by the First World War. As the war rages in Europe, Londoners are sending brave animals to help the soldiers - and Mouser and Sammy are soon on their way to the trenches. Boldly criss-crossing no-man's land they make new friends of every nationality - and reunite with old ones. But on the muddy front line, under fire and constantly in danger, will their friendship be enough to save them so they can return home together?
Megan has written a number of animal stories set during wartime -
