Fiction - Age 7 up

NZ Writer & Illustrator
Vince Ford, illustrated by Jenny Cooper
Scrap Book 3 Dog on Trial
Scholastic 2013   $15.00pb         136 pages        
 ISBN 978 1 7754 3082 7

Themes: Sheep Dog trials/Father-son relationships/ Sequels/ Talking animals

In this, the third book in the series, Scrap, an enthusiastic young sheep dog, is brought into conflict with his father, Rex, over the forthcoming sheep dog trails.  I have a feeling Vince Ford must have had a lot of fun (plus many tongue-in-cheek moments) writing these easily read stories which have something for so many – country children/ city children/ good readers/ reluctant readers – and for adults as well.
Google Scholastic NZ for titles and details of the other books in the series. 

Year 3 up/ Age 7 up
