A really good book, all about a boy that joins the army, but before he goes to his training camp there is a big explosion. The boy finds the german shepherd in a poor state, cleans him up, gains his trust and they become friends. The boy tries to find a good home for him, but he doesn't manage it. on the way to the train station the dog follows him and he meets his kernel and he is very impressed with how well trained the dog is and said that he could come with him and could try out to be a bomber dog and that the boy would be his trainer as the dog would not work well with anyone else. The dog and the boy go to the academy and the story continues!!!
The book is based on a real life event and is a touching story about a true bond between canine and man and how they would die for one another!!! If you are a animal/dog lover this book will be a tear jerker!!! I read the story to my son who was doing world war 2 at school and he was then able to take the book into school for show and tell and to share his experience of the book with his teacher and school pupils. It is one of the better stories i have read and I highly recommend it!!!!

3.5 stars. Definitely not as good a read as her others, this is still enjoyable and informative.

It felt at times like a younger 'Soldier Dog' (Sam Angus), with similarities of plot and character.

Like Rix's other books, this is set in World War II and focuses on dogs. We have Grey, brought over from France by the Resistance as a puppy. Rescued from living as a stray by Nathan, called up the next day, he sees Grey's potential as a trained War Dog and takes the German Shepherd to the War Dog training school, expecting he'll leave him there.

For the first time in Rix's 'war dog' series (as it could be called), we see more detail about the training process of volunteer animals, about life for these dogs.

There's a few coincidences that children will thrill at, but that seem a little tired and convenient for an adult reader.

The climactic scenes overseas seem quite short and rushed. Much more could have happened, but I expect there are more books to come.

It was nice to see Michael (the only recurring character), though in a very small part - I hope he features again in future books and we see more into his life as a dog trainer.

Nice enough story, lots of detail as ever about the period and war but in my opinion the weakest of the three Rix dog stories.

I read this book with my 12-year-old son, personally I thought it was a little slow going, however, my son loved it and could not wait to read the next chapter. What more can you ask when trying to get a 12-year-old boy to read rather than play Xbox! Will be reading more in the series.

I judge books such as this on my children's reaction. A little to advanced for ages 5 and six, but it had my seven-year-old was absolutely gripped for 'story time' before bed. Megan's work is well researched and told in a language that is easily accessible for youngsters. It is a really good story, by the way, which certainly helps.

Format: Paperback
Bomber Dog is one of the most fascinating books of Megan Rix. This book is set in England during World War 2. Nathan, the main character, is a soldier with his dog named Grey, a German Shepherd. Nathan was a paratrooper and Grey was a paradog that was trained to track Nathan when he was in danger. Nathan and Grey had the most dangerous and amazing adventures together, like airplane battles, parachute falls, perilous chases and great escapes. Nathan and his dog were always together until the victory was theirs.
Completely petrified, Nathan had to jump out of a plane and started screaming. The sergeant heard him when Grey was barking with excitement. Such scenes that combine hilarious and thrilling situations are found throughout the book and this makes it interesting to the reader. However, there are also emotional parts of the book, when, for example, Nathan’s sister was crying when he had to go to the war. The book brings out a lot of powerful feelings to the reader and also teaches us how people are called to overcome difficult situations.
While I was reading the book I couldn’t put it down thanks to Megan Rix’s writing techniques that create an absolutely intriguing and fascinating atmosphere. I’d recommend this wonderful book for children over 9, because they would travel to one of the most important moments of the 20th century. Both entertaining and educational, Bomber Dog is an ideal present for every child.

I chose to rate this book because I love how Nathan and Grey lose each other but then get reunited again.

I would recommend this book to children from 7 upwards because I thought it was a little bit scary in parts of the book.

I had no dislikes because I loved it the whole way through the book.
