A new Andy and Spirit adventure for kids to enjoy comes to you from Mary Jean Kelso. In Search and Rescue, Andy and Spirit assist in searching through the woods around Joe’s home for a dumped dog Tully is caring for.
What a fun adventure. Tracy’s father-in-law, Tully, is looking for a younger dog to help him around the farm. When his cowboy friend, Joe, calls to tell him about a dumped dog, Tully agrees to stop by. The men find a mother and her mixed-breed pups. Tully takes all of them to his farm, but the mother keeps running off and they don’t know why. They enlist the help of Andy and Spirit to find the mother dog after an escape.
What I’ve enjoyed about this series is that Andy and Spirit are always in the midst of the action. Whether at the fair or the rodeo or rescuing bullies or run away dogs, they are in the thick of things. In Search and Rescue, they actually come into the story a bit later, but it is Andy’s keen hearing and Spirit’s animal sense that saves the day. This is another wonderful addition to Kelso’s Andy and Spirit series.
I would be remiss if I didn’t talk about the beautiful artwork by K.C. Snider. After this many years, Snider’s work is easily recognizable to me. I love everything of hers that I’ve seen. In this book, it’s the warm colors, the stunning beauty of nature, and the expressive faces on the characters that catch my eye.
At the end of the book, readers find information on rescue groups and suggestions for interacting with cats and dogs: education and entertainment in one lovely book.
