 Strongheart Wonder Dog of the Silver Screen 

by Candace Fleming

This is a heavily illustrated middle-grade novel about a canine movie star of the 1920s, dramatically told in both words and pictures by an acclaimed author and a Caldecott Medal-winning illustrator.
When movie director Larry Trimble finds Etzel, a fierce, highly trained three-year-old German shepherd police dog, Larry sees past the snarls and growls and brings Etzel back to Hollywood, where he is renamed Strongheart. Larry grooms his protégé to be a star of the silver screen--and he succeeds, starting with Strongheart's first film, .
Touching, charming, playful, and based on real events, this moving tale by Candace Fleming and illustrated by Eric Rohmann tells all about "the wonder dog" who took America by storm.
