About the book
 
Olive takes her dog, Ginger, to the park for a walk. Ginger chases a deer and runs off into the woods. A very distraught Olive runs home to tell her parents.
The story moves to Ginger alone, frightened and trapped in the woods. She is rescued by Zen a homeless Australian shepherd. The two dogs make their way back home to Olive. Will Zen find a loving home with Olive and her parents?
 
My review
 
Zinger in the woods is such a sweet first chapter book. With seven short chapters and filled with beautiful illustrations it's the perfect book to encourage self reading in young children. Throughout the story M. T. Becker portrays the special bond between child and pet.
 
There is danger, suspense and a compassionate hero in the form of Zen, the shepherd who rescues Ginger.
Zinger in the Woods has underlying themes of nature, natural remedies & super foods.
I liked that we get both points of view with Ginger frightened and scared in the woods and then we see Olive at home sad and worried.

Zinger in the Woods is a heartwarming story of friendship with beautiful illustrations that give a visual depth to the story.

Ages: 5 - 8 years
