Michael Owen Jones about this book: Why would a cat terrorize a dog? And what is it like to be bullied by a predatory presence that "will not give up and will not go away?" These are just some of the questions the reader will find answers to in this first book of the "Bentley and Friends" series. Bentley, a tiny white fur ball of a dog, happens to get on the wrong side of a big tom cat with a nasty attitude. At the same time he is blamed for something he did not do! Throughout the book, you will find Bentley on his doggy quest to make amends, and get back into the good graces of everyone involved. While on crusade, he is stalked by the killer cat, rides on the back of a harbour seal, and is almost drowned in the ocean. All in a day's work for the pint-sized hero of "Bentley Bags The Bear"! This book is intended for the six to ten year-old crowd, although I suspect that a few adults would enjoy a few tongue-in-cheek allusions and suggestions that may blow right by the rug-rat contingent! The book has a seaside setting. Since I live near the ocean, and am in love with the smell and sound of the sea, it was a "natural" for me. Also,I have been around dogs and cats for most of my life. As an elementary school teacher, I have had my fair share of child-related adventures. Certainly, I have come to understand what makes them want to pick up a book and read it. Enjoy!
