A nonstop romp full of hilarious action, Hound Heroes is sure to be a hit with young fans of graphic novels.

Raves & reviews:

Praise for Beware the Claw!

". . . the jokes are so dopey they're clever . . . the most appealing feature may be the characters' expressions. When a kitten uses Sheepdog as a stepstool, the dog's befuddlement is priceless . . . filled (with) bold, eye-catching blocks of color." — Kirkus
