The Adventures of Blitz and Uncle Drake by Peter S Leriget Review
Hi I’m Blitz…. I’m a German Shorthair Pointer. A bit of a working dog. My job is to take care of things here on the farm where I live with my owner, Pete.
My duties include keeping the peace on the farm among the other critters that live here, keeping the riffraff away and playing, but don’t tell Pete about the last one. Well enough about me, this is a story about how Uncle Drake came to live with us, the dangerous mission we embarked on and the lifelong friends we made along the way.
Uncle Drake came to us badly beaten and half-starved, it took Pete and I weeks to nurse him back to health, but other than the health problems something always seemed to bother him, when I finally got him to tell me what was wrong I couldn’t believe it, he told me he had to go back to where he came from and get something his mother had left him. So that’s where the first adventure begins. Getting there was only half the battle, but when we got there the trouble really began.
Pete Leriget is a retired pilot with a love to write stories for children. Pete loves to spend time with his family which includes their three German Shorthairs, fishing and exploring Idaho where they live.
I received a complimentary copy.
Cassandra's Review- I enjoyed reading this outloud to my kids. It is a great sleepytime or quiet time book. The story is sweet and easy for kids to understand. It shares love and caring in a way that is pure of heart and perfect for any age. The author has a gentle way about the writing style and it puts a mellow tone to the words in a good way.
