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.

Co-presented by the Kansas City Public Library and the National World War I Museum at Liberty Memorial.
