Dogs of War by Sheila Kennan

(I’ve already told you how important I think graphic novels are.  Did you miss that post?  Find it here.)

I really enjoyed the three stories that comprised this book.  The author and illustrator do a fine job of showing how dogs serve so many purposes during and after war.  I found some of the illustrations difficult in the first story, but I definitely got better at reading them as the book went on.  It was truly worth the effort.
