Wendy Orr has written more than two dozen children's books, including the first four books in the Rainbow Street Shelter series; Mokie and Bik; Mokie and Bik Go to Sea; and Nim's Island. She lives with her family in Australia, near the sea. Patricia Castelao was born in the rainy Santiago de Compostela, so she spent lots of time drawing at home as a child. All that drawing led to her work on the Rainbow Street Shelter series and many other wonderful illustration projects.
"The story will thus appeal to fans of pet fiction as well as those who love happy endings to sad stories." --BCCB on Lost! A Dog Called Bear "The believable plot and inherent suspense will keep readers turning the pages of this fine addition to early chapter books." --Kirkus Reviews on Lost! A Dog Called Bear "Orr has a way with words and dialogue that brings this story to life. . . . A promising start for the Rainbow Street Shelter series." --Booklist on Lost! A Dog Called Bear
