This is my 31st read for the year. I read it with my two, 12 year olds and we finished it up this evening. I had gotten this book for my daughter, Finley, for Christmas because she loves Corgis. She has a few Corgi stuffed animals, and dreams of having one of these dogs one day. Why doesn't she have one now? Becuase we have a very sweet 7 year old Goldendoodle that is plenty to manage right now, thank you very much.
This book is about a dog named Pippin (who actually happens to be the name of the Corgi the writer has) who is a special kind of dog. He is a carrier of a fairy named Alianna. Fairies ride Corgis because they are too small to ride horses. Alianna comes to Pippin and tells him that a special Gem has been stolen and it is up to him, the elves and the fairies to figure out how to get it back. They have to get the Gem because if it is destroyed, it will destroy all good magic on earth.
This is a very cute book. It is okay writing, but the kids liked it. I think most of us who are pet owners/animal lovers would love to spin a tale about them. We always visualize them being superheroes in their own special way.
If you have kids who are animal lovers, and love a world with fairies and elves, then check out this book. I am sure they will enjoy it.
