KIRKUS REVIEW

Private Pepper was one of the best of the rash of books about dogs at war (October 1943) -- and this is its sequel, the story of how Private Pepper, home from Guadalonal, is taught to be a civilian again. The big brown collie had been wounded in the South Pacific, and was brought back by ship and plane to a hospital in Nebraska, then on to a kennel where he was taught to be ""boy's best friend"" again. On return to his 11-year old master he proved that, despite honorable discharge, he was still at base a soldier, for he captured and held a burglar through a long night. Simply told, above average in books of its class, and the Diana Thorne illustrations are sure key to successful merchandise value.
