This second adventure in the Rosco the Rascal series will keep readers guessing from the start. Fifth grader James and his second grade sister, Mandy, are building snowmen and sled riding down steep hills on their winter family vacation.
Amid the fun, they dont realize its a coyote pup, lost and frightened, that's been poking around their cabin in the snow. Its Rosco who discovers the identity of the wild creature first, so he sets out on his own to help the pup.
When the kids finally unravel the mystery, its almost too late to rescue the poor creature, which now finds itself in even more trouble. Its up to brother and sister to use their wits in a sticky situation, yet trust their rascal-turned-hero dog to help.
*All books in the Rosco the Rascal series are standalone and can be read in any order.
*Fans of The Magic Tree House series will love this brother and sister pair, and fans of classic, heroic dogs - from Lassie to Beethoven - will love Rosco.
... A fine choice for newly independent and reluctant readers, featuring good-natured characters, a well-intentioned mutt, and an outdoor rescue mission. -Kirkus Reviews
