Book Review

Marsha Hall Brown’s Show Dogs Escape To The Seashore Did you ever wonder what would happen if dogs became humans? In this fun frolic Show Dogs Escape to the Seashore by Marsha Hall Brown, one gets to enjoy a flight of fancy with the dogs! When seven group winners get upstaged by a rambunctious brown puppy who steals the show, they decide they are bored and have had enough of dog shows. So off the seven big winners go on an adventure of their own. This adorable tale for kids of all ages will keep readers turning the pages. It is a well-crafted book with stimulating illustrations by Dawn Secord that are in themselves collectors’ items. The surprise ending comes as no surprise to those who have shown dogs for years. Yet it will surprise newcomers to our sport, which is what we want to encourage youngsters to become. This book is for them!
