Hi, I am looking for fictional dog stories with happy endings for a nearly 6 year old boy. He has outgrown most picture books so we would need something a bit longer but so many of the good dog stories end with the dog dying.
So far his favourite ahs been Kavik The Wolf Dog - and I have ordered another book by the same author.
A close second is : One Dog and His Boy
I am afraid you can not answer this without some spoilers so anyone really against spoilers should most likely skip the replies. I very much want spoilers rather than a sad child over bedtime stories. He does prefer books for much older children in general though, we just don't want anything too depressing.
His favourite breed is the Staffordshire Bull Terrier, followed by wolf dogs and German shepherds. In addition to dogs he likes war stories, especially Stalingrad, but then any dog story set during the battle of Stalingrad is apt to end with dinner. He especially likes stories that include a boy as well.
If you are the author of a book of dog stories for older children, please let us know you are the author when replying. I'll still have a look at it, but a recommendation from the author is not quite the same as reader recommendation.
