About

Sergeant Stubby: How a Stray Dog and His Best Friend Helped Win World War I and Stole the Heart of a Nation  

“Is the appeal of this book greater for dog lovers or military-history buffs? It's a toss-up, because the book's charm simply radiates off the page in all directions.”--Booklist

“Bausum's narrative is solidly researched…and effectively illustrates a meaningful relationship in which a special dog helped a soldier ‘see beyond the horror and uncertainty of combat to the beauty of just being alive.’”—Publishers Weekly

 

Alexandria Library welcomes AAR participants to share their thoughts via social media on the Library's Facebook and Twitter pages, using the hashtag #AAR2018.
