Angela's Pick of the Month

Beasts of Burden

Beasts of Burden is a fun-filled adventure story that features a heroic group of dogs-and one cat-who are set with the task of keeping the residents of Burden Hill safe from supernatural occurrences. Early experiences with the paranormal have set up Pugs, Red, Whitey, Ace, and the Orphan to become members of the Wise Dog Society, official animal agents to aid those with odd concerns. Following a slew of magical frogs, encountering hostile ghosts, setting off to rescue an old friend from a sewer filled with some very large rats, and discovering buried secrets in the local cemetery are all in a day's work for this new team of unlikely heroes.

This book is nothing but action, fun and that unparalleled cuteness that only dogs fighting the supernatural can bring. I love the book for the well defined characters in the different dogs (and cats!) and the clear, enticing story line. The artwork is reminiscent of a Monet painting and the colors are striking. All around a great read!
