Terrific Tuesday

Lily a true story of courage and the Joplin Tornado by Carolyn E. Mueller, illustrated by Nick Hayes is the story of Lily and Tara. Lily a rescue dog that learned to rescue others is the highlight of this story.  Hayes cartoon illustrations add dimension to this serious story.  It doesn't make it a lighthearted read, just a bit lighter in severe circumstances.  I'll keep this title in mind for next year when the Summer Reading Theme may have a 'hero' angle.
