On a trip to the park with her mother, a young girl hears a rhythm coming from the world around her and begins to move to the beat, finally beginning an impromptu dance in which other children join her.
Adopted as the mascot of the U.S. Army’s 102nd Infantry regiment, Stubby the dog became a comrade-in-arms. Ann Bausum recounts the remarkable life of this courageous canine, who served on 17 battlefields, suffered wounds from crossfire, became a national celebrity, met three presidents, and found a best friend in American soldier J. Robert Conroy.
Bausum has written nine National Geographic books for young readers during the past twelve years. She has won numerous awards, including a Sibert Honor Award and three other national awards for literature.
