Product Description:

Caesar the EDD (Explosive Detection Dog) is back in Dando-Collins' military fiction series, Caesar the War Dog. This time he has been assigned to a special ops mission to rescue the UN Secretary-General, who has been captured by the Taliban. Follow Caesar and his handler as they prepare for the mission, discuss tactics, and help execute the rescue. The characters are diverse but relatively flat, and the story is more cerebral than it is emotionally engaging. Instead, the book's strength is in its level of detail and contemporary subject matter. It is a positive voice for military intervention, which does not glorify war and violence but, rather, promotes peacekeeping and cooperation. Grades 4-7. --Julia Smith
