This is a wonderful series. I have read it several times and it never gets old. These books are about a dog named Waggit, but you probably guessed that. In the books Waggit and his “Team” are a couple of park dogs who are trying to survive in New York City. The dogs are called the Tazarians, because of their leader Tazar, and they are one of the many groups trying to survive. The whole story is about Waggit deciding whether he wants to be a part of the interesting group of homeless animals or if he wants to find a home with another Upright. (That’s what they call humans.) It is an amazing Tale filled with adventure, some drama, and an adorable white dog trying to find a home.

I definitely recommend this book, and series, to you. Especially if you like dogs. This book is completely Christian friendly and kid friendly. But I do have to warn you, this series is about dogs, and you know dog books. The books aren’t sad, but there can be some sad parts. (There are barely any sad parts.) But I still recommend this book. Trust me, it’s a good one. Hope you liked my review. -The Tiger Reader

  • You know dog books. There are going to be some sad parts.

He is nameless. He is homeless. He is lost.

Until he is found . . . by a team of mutts who shelter him and teach him how to survive the wilds of the city park.

And so he becomes Waggit, the best hunter and tracker in the pack.

But life in the park is dangerous and uncertain. In winter, food and warmth are scarce. Another team of wild dogs is a constant menace. And there is always the fear of capture by park rangers. Waggit can’t help feeling that something is missing . . . something warm and cozy . . . and human. Then one day everything changes and Waggit must face a new threat and a new choice.

Peter Howe’s tale of an abandoned puppy’s search for home is an exciting mix of humor, adventure, and suspense. Most of all, it is a story of how love can turn strangers into family.
