A hurricane blows through town, leaving the family home in ruins. Odie, the dog, is abandoned at the local shelter, when his family can no longer take care of him. But Odie wishes and dreams of a new home where he will be happy again.

Hurricane Dog is written at the first grade “G” level, and is meant for classroom use. Told in rhyme and illustrated in bright and cheery color, this cute story sends a positive message to kids reminding them to dream big, because dreams can come true.

Kids love animals – especially dogs – and the happy ending will make them smile. This book would make a charming addition to any classroom or school library.
