This was one action packed, roller coaster twists and turns, hold your breath suspenseful book (with a dog), it has everything, and paired with voice actor S.W. Salzman narrating this book it just doesn't get any better. Salzman makes you feel as though you are there with Eddie trying to help him, at least though this one crisis, or the next and then you are hooked.

I love these books as they can tell meaningful and diverse stories without the reader knowing it, if that makes sense. It is like these animals can teach you these lessons, without you the reader thinking going, oh this again. It is great, I love these characters, and if you love them now you can also follow them online, and grow with them as they have middle grade books as well. I also love the illustrations the animals expressions and gestures are so wonderful and really makes these guys your friends. This is a great addition to any library. #WeNeedDiverseBooks

I don't want to say to much for fear of giving away some part of this awesome book, but let me say if you are expecting Serafina, than you won't find her here, but you will find another wonderful girl wrapped in Smokey Mountain lore and maybe a bit of history, just a bit, along with new and colorful friends to make along the way. If you think Mr. Beatty might have left out any of his hold your breath suspense or cheer the characters on action well don't worry, there is absolutely no shortage of either as Willa takes you on this whirl wind adventure of hers. This book is a beautiful tale sure to win the hearts of many readers, especially those of us that live near the Great Smokey Mountains, and who knows maybe it will inspire many more readers to visit this great National Park someday.

There is not a whole lot left I can say without giving a bunch away, so I won't, you will have to find out for yourself. But I can tell you there is a bunch of action, there is suspense, and maybe some blood involved as well. This is a wonderfully spun tale Brian Scott has written for us and narrated so gracefully by S W Salzman, who kept the reverent parts just that and the exciting part revved up it, was a joy to listen too, Salzman is truly a master at his craft.

This is really cute very diverse book about a Mama Graciela and her love for the stray kitties that came by her little restaurant La Bahia. Her other love was making her bacalaitos fritos that people came from miles around to eat, but she kept the recipe was a secret. But the kitties also loved her bacalaitos fritos and came by the hundreds to get some, and as you can imagine both lots of people and hundreds to thousands of cats all wanting Mama Graciela's bacaliatos fritos every day became a problem, but you will have to read the book to see how Mama Graciela fixed it.
the book was really good and diverse, I really liked it, of course I am a cat person but I am pretty sure dog people will find it in the hearts to enjoy it as well. I have the dyslexic print copy, I am dyslexic so I found that nice. I wasn't sure at first how I felt about it since this is really the first time I have seen it, but I found some books on my kindle that I could change the font to this type and I think it does make it easier to read. I think it is awesome that they are printing books in this font, maybe more schools are doing more for the dyslexic kids, and it would be nice for libraries to have print books for dyslexic kids as well. I hope this publisher and maybe others will start offering this as a option.

This is not your typical zombie book and it is also not your typical SEAL team six book, it is a survival book, and a do what is right book despite what you are told, and that is what the military is supposed to be, not following blindly. I think James Wallace has caught the Navy spirit well in this book and I loved it through and through, I was cheering for those SEALs the whole way, as there is no shortage of action or suspense with this team. As for his narrator he could not have picked a better one than S. W. Salzman who is an awesome voice actor, he does great voices for all the characters and makes you believe you are a part of the team, there with the guys. I loved this audio and hope I can go back and get the rest soon.
