A young girl named Maggie has a lot of things going on in her life. Her cousin, Vera, falls ill with a fever so quickly, that nobody expects it. There is a huge ice-berg blocking the way into Bonnie Bay, which causes problems for more than one boat. And atop all of that, a new law is passed that says that the only dogs aloud in Bonnie Bay are sheepdogs and other herding dogs.
Maggie has a dog too–his name is Sirius–but he doesn’t herd. But no matter how desperate she is to protect her beautiful dog from the new law, there is a tragedy in Bonnie Bay. And only Sirius can fix it.
What will Maggie chose? Her dog–or saving a hundred human lives?
What I liked about this book: It was very fun to read and learn about Newfoundland culture. The story was good, and the description was good too. I think that nine-years-old and up could read this book, but it really just depends on your reading level, not your age. 😉
What I didn’t like about this book: Hm… Well, I suppose that if there was a version of this that was written for more older readers, I would like that. But even though it isn’t exactly in my level, there were still some words that I didn’t know. I may even re-read it and find those words again. 🙂
Tune in next Friday to here about ‘Kävik the Wolf Dog’.
