RED JOKER by Margaret S. Johnson


Email this review


This latest by the author of the popular dog series has the predictable well- developed story, appealing illustrations and simple, quiet style of the others. This time the dog hero is an Irish setter who befriends a high-strung, fine young race horse and becomes a necessary factor in the horse's success. A forced parting from the young master he adores, life in strange stables with his horse friend, a kidnapping by horse thieves, and final rescue make an engrossing story of the setter, Red Joker. All the elements of a good dog story, simplified for second and third year readers.
