What are Rakuten Super Points™?
|Known for her rich character development, the author brings all her skills to delving into the mind of a clever, philosophical, and hopeful Border Collie searching for a home.|
From the Publisher:
When he wakes up one morning and finds himself in a strange place with no master and no sheep to herd, a Border Collie puppy tries to survive alone in the world while trying to find his way back to the only home he ever knew and loved. Reprint.
The sheep closed in around him like a big, woolly blanket. The puppy had never been so scared or so excited in his life. Soon he was racing, feinting, dodging—learning what it means to be one of the proud breed of Border collies, the finest sheepherders in the world. Then, almost overnight, his life is turned upside down. He finds himself in a series of strange places, with no sheep, his family gone. With nothing but the courage he was born with and a dream, he searches for the life he once knew, gathering names and adventures as he goes. For a short time, he’s called Blackie. To the Goat Man, he’s Shep. To Hollerin, he’s Spot. There’s one name that threatens to haunt him forever—Sparky, the name Billy the circus man calls him. But there’s another name that he is given, one that finally makes him feel at home. . . .||
"The attitude that carries Jack through adventure after adventure to nothing short of a fairy-tale ending--complete with sheep--will win readers over and keep them rooting for him all the way." 03/15/2006
