Welcome to Hound Hotel, the perfect place to board your canine family members. Readers will enjoy meeting all sorts of dogs through the eyes of eight-year-old Alfie Wolfe, the good-hearted, funny narrator. Every dog that visits the kennel has different needs, and Alfie and his twin sister, Alfreeda, are ready to serve them. The problem is the twins usually disagree about what those needs are! There is one thing they always agree on, though: there's nothing better than a dog! Nonfiction back matter about dog breeds, as well as a glossary and discussion questions make this series a perfect addition for classrooms.
