Margarita Engle, illustrations by Olga & Aleksey Ivanov. Mountain Dog. (Henry Holt, 2013)
Gabe is a rescue dog, an amazing hero who saves the lost, the injured, the frightened. Tony has lost his
mom, has been nearly destroyed by being forced to make dogs fight to the death, and is frightened that
there is no future for him. No boy and his dog were ever better matched.
