Fearless Felix and His Heroes
About the Book
Most people love dogs. When we think of dogs, we usually think of our pets. We might even remember dogs that work on a farm or help people with daily tasks. In other words, there are all kinds of dogs.
Author David Volk’s Fearless Felix and His Heroes is about dogs that have gone to war in service of their country, dogs that provide assistance to people who need help in their daily lives, and dogs that work tirelessly to keep us safe.
Fearless Felix sniffs out danger. He tells about his life as a bomb dog. He also tells stories of dogs throughout history who’s served humans. He shares stories of war dogs beginning in World War I. He also tells the story of service dogs, such as seeing-eye dogs.
Fearless Felix and His Heroes is entertaining and educational. You may start to look at dogs with a new appreciation for all they do.
“Fearless Felix is a wonderful book that captures all the many ways dogs have served us and brought us joy down through the years. If you love dogs you’ll love this book.”
