Dogs of War by Sheila Keenan, Nathan Fox , read by Angie, on 02/19/2014

Dogs of War is a graphic novel in three parts. Each part deals with a war and a dog who was part of that war. We start out with Boots, a mercy dog in the trenches of WWI. The middle story is about Loki, a sled dog in Greenland during WWII. The final stories switches between flashbacks of Sheba in Vietnam and Bouncer back in Alabama. These stories are interesting, but I didn’t always feel like the illustrations were totally clear. At times I wasn’t exactly sure what was going on in them. I also wondered about the age this was geared towards. It seems meant for kids, but there was some graphic violence.
