For fans of Balto and other real-life dog stories, here's a heavily illustrated middle-grade novel--now in paperback--about a canine movie star of the 1920s.
When movie director Larry Trimble travels to Berlin searching for his next big star, he finds Etzel, a fierce, highly trained three-year-old German shepherd police dog.
Larry sees past the snarls and growls and brings Etzel back to Hollywood, where he is renamed Strongheart. Along with screenwriter Jane Murfin, Larry grooms his protégé to be a star of the silver screen--and he succeeds. But when Strongheart is accused of an unthinkable crime, can he summon his best acting skills and clear his name?
Touching, charming, playful, and based on real events, this moving tale by critically-acclaimed author Candace Fleming, and illustrated by Caldecott Medalist Eric Rohmann, tells all about "the wonder dog" who took America by storm.
