Synopsis

The Hero Pup is a heartwarming and uplifting story from Megan Rix, bestselling author of The Great Escape, The Victory Dogs, The Bomber Dog and A Soldier's Friend.



'For now Patch is just a Helper Pup,' Joe said. 'But one day . . .'

Eleven-year-old Joe is dreading his first Christmas without Dad.



But then Mum suggests they volunteer for Helper Dogs and train puppies to help people in need.

Joe has always wanted a dog and when he meets golden Labrador Patch he knows he's found him. With Joe's love and training, can Patch go from playful pupy to heroic helper - and mend Joe's broken heart along the way?



A classic-in-the-making, Megan Rix takes little-known true stories of animal heroes and turns them into must-have heartwarming stories for 8+ readers, perfect for fans of Michael Morpurgo and Sarah Lean.
