Hey everyone, it’s Sarah!
I received this audio galley through Netgalley. This was one of several books I needed to select to complete audio testing through the Netgalley app. I hope that more audiobooks will begin appearing through the Netgalley site. This galley was a voice galley, which basically means it was read by a synthesized voice. I won’t be commenting on the reader, as there wasn’t one.
Title: Luna Howls at the Moon
Author: Kristin O’Donnell Tubb
Luna is a therapy dog, who has trained to help young patients with their emotions. She is working on getting her pin and being completely official, but she is not quite there yet. Tessa, Luna’s human, has started a group therapy session for Caleb, Amelia, and Bea, three young clients who are struggling. When the fourth client, Hector, doesn’t show with his hoverboard, Luna and the group go on a quest to find him. Luna struggles with her training, should she stay or should she go. The group avoids Tessa and parents, while hoping to reach Hector in time. Their journey is narrated by a street cat who joins mid-quest.
This is a sweet novel that I can see many young readers loving. It talks about therapy animals and gets into the differences between types of service animals. I love the way Luna describes her world, it is very dog-like. This is a solid series that I will be recommending to my animal loving readers.
