{Synopsis} – These puppies are magic!

Max is thrilled to be adopting a golden retriever from Power's Pets. He's wanted a dog forever– he can't believe it's finally happening!

It couldn't come at a better time. A neighborhood boy has started teasing Max, and school hasn't been very fun. But Max is about to find out that his new puppy has a very special magical power that might just change everything.

{My thoughts} – Max Harding and his friends are a part of a flag football team named the Walruses. His coach has a cute little Husky and every time he sees that dog he wishes it was his team name. All the other teams have strong breed names but them and their team seems to be the worst of them all.

Max has always wanted a dog of his own but his mom and dad have always said it’s too much responsibility for them. Max and his friends all help at pet store in town named Powers Pets. On his way out the door his mom tells him that his dad has a big surprise for him. Max doesn’t want to get his hopes up but he thinks he is going to be getting a puppy. A short time after Max and his friends start working his dad shows up and Max does get a puppy. My Powers makes sure Max knows the puppy’s special trick. When the puppy does his trick Max hears a voice in his head. It takes him awhile to figure it out but he only hears voices of people that need help.

Max’s team has to play against the Bulldogs in the next week. One of the players on that team named Jason isn’t real nice. It seems Bear, Max’s dog can tell that Jason doesn’t like him. Eventually Max is able to get Jason to pet Bear and then things are okay. Max’s team also win the game when he and another player switch positions.

This book is nice, it shows that it’s good to help other people. It also shows that when you include everyone on the team you can more easily work towards your end goal of winning. The illustrations in this book match perfectly with the storyline. I also liked how easy this book was to read and follow along with. It is another wonderful book for any child that loves dogs/ puppies!

Final Conclusion: 5 Star Rating.
