It was so appropriate to receive this book, “Snow Valley Heroes : A Christmas Tale” by Robert J. McCarty, at this time, seeing that Christmas is so near.  It is the third volume in the Planet of the Dog Series, where it tells the stories of how dogs first arrived at Planet Earth and teaches humans about loyalty, love and peace.

In the first volume, the story is about how these wonderful dogs save the hard-working farmers of Green Valley, as they were going to be invaded by the Stone City Warriors. Meanwhile, in the second volume, more dogs arrive to free the kidnapped children and prevent war between the Stone City Warriors and Black Hawk Tribes.

This being the third book in the series, it tells the reader about how the dogs saved Christmas in the Snow Valley, where Santa, Mrs. Claus, elves and a whole community, living in Tundra Town, were living peacefully. However, living across Santa, was King of the North, a bitter and angry man who was banished to the Ice Castle, together with his Royal Guards for their cruelty.

On another planet, the Planet of the Dogs, lived the Snow Valley Dogs, who had been summoned to Planet Earth, as ‘Miss Merrie’, queen of the dogs, had a terrible dream that the King of the North was going to avenge his banishment and stop Christmas from happening.

As the story progresses, terrible things start happening to Santa and the town folk, creating confusion and sadness. The most important animals of Christmas, the reindeers have been kidnapped by the Royal Guards and it seemed like Christmas was never going to happen!

Thankfully, the dogs found a way to create allies with the children of the Ice Castle’s servants, and with a determination, freed the reindeers. However, we all know the story doesn’t end just like that. What happens to the King of the North? Does he stop there? How much more evil can he do?

Buy It! : I personally enjoyed reading this book very  much. I found Mr. McCarty’s story-telling to be absorbing and a real page turner. The charcoal illustrations by Stella Mustanoja McCarty, depicts some of the scenes from the story, which added to the vividness of each chapter. My favourite dog, would be Big Tok, as he reminds me very much of an Alsatian, which was very protective of me, when I was a little girl. My 8 year old son, enjoyed the book tremendously, as it has it’s heroes and baddies and that at the end of the day, he learns that negative acts do hurt people’s feelings. Although it had more words than pictures (he’d rather read comics), he was very amazed that he followed through each chapter and finished it.  This is a great Xmas gift for any boy or girl, who loves reading. Definitely a huge bonus for kids who are dog lovers!
