About The Book

This is the sixth book in the Pet Rescue Club series.

Welcome to the Pet Rescue Club!  The series begins when Janey starts a blog where people can share cute pet photos and stories. She never imagined she’d receive a heartbreaking photo of a skinny, abandoned dog. She calls on her friends Lolli, Zach, and Adam to help–and that’s just the start! When these animal-loving fourth graders discover how many animals need help in their suburban hometown, they can’t just sit by and do nothing…

 

In volume 6, the Pet Rescue Club is planning a fundraising event at the Third Street Shelter when they get an interesting call: a neighboring town needs help with the happiest dog around, Champion. The specialty firm helping Champion get his prosthetic legs is too far away for the shelter to manage. With fittings, trainings, and physical therapy, they just can’t make it work. But, of course, the Pet Rescue Club volunteers to help in anyway they can. Read along to find out how these fourth graders help out…and if Champion finds his forever home!

She also wrote several episodes of the children’s television series Chuggington. Brenda likes to say that she majored in monkeys in college (she earned a bachelor’s degree in primatology and anthropology from California State University, Fullerton) and that some of her best friends are chimpanzees (she worked as a chimp keeper at a wildlife sanctuary). She lives in Covina, California.

About The Illustrators

Steve James was born in Midland, Texas, in 1973, the fifth of nine children. He has always enjoyed making pictures. Steve received his BFA in illustration from Brigham Young University where he studied traditional painting techniques. Since then, he has worked in the entertainment industry as an illustrator and concept artist. Steve latched on to digital art at an early age. He first used a computer tablet on the TI-99/4a in 1983 and is happy he his is not limited to eight colors today. He now finds the computer a wonderful tool for getting what is in his head out where other people can see it. Steve enjoys running around town like a crazy man and wishes his body would not break down so much. Many people believe he only runs as an excuse to fuel his shoe collecting habit and dress like a superhero. He now lives in Lehi, Utah, with his wife and crazy cat.

Dana Regan grew up in a small village in northern Wisconsin. It was very cold and snowy, so she migrated south to St. Louis to get her BFA in Illustration from Washington University. It was very hot, so she traveled west to Kansas City and made greeting cards. It was a very big company, so she set up a small studio in her home to freelance and illustrate children’s books. It was just right. She is living happily ever after. But she misses the cold and snow. Dana has written 10 books and illustrated more than 85 books for children.
