Dog Called Grk by Josh Lacey
Book DescriptionWhen Tim finds an abandoned and bedraggled little dog outside his house, he can't just leave him there, even though his parents hate the idea of pets in their house. And then the endearing animal turns out to be Grk, the much loved pet of the recently replaced ambassador of Stanislavia, left behind when they made a rushed (and enforced) exit. Tim innocently wants to reunite them, but it means that he will become embroiled in the violent and dangerous politics of this little known East European country. To find them, he will have to break into a high security prison (and out again!) and escape from the consequent hue and cry. This will involve the hair-raising piloting of a helicopter, and a nail-biting race for the border. Could this be the new 007? A Dog Called Grk is Shortlisted for the Branford Boase Award.

US Kirkus Review » Timothy Malt is a very ordinary 12-year-old London boy on the day he finds a small, hungry black-and-white dog. Though his busy parents plan to take the stray to the Battersea dog home, Tim's strong sense of justice propels him on a journey to the tiny Eastern European country of Stanislavia to return Grk to young Natascha Raffifi, the daughter of the former ambassador to Great Britain. Unfortunately, evil Colonel Zinfandel has deposed the democratically elected president and taken over Stanislavia, imprisoning Natascha and her brother and killing their parents. Tim steals a military helicopter, finds the imprisoned children and, with help, escapes over the border. By turns lightly comic and cinematically adventurous, the plot zips along nicely with tongue firmly in cheek and with the resourceful young protagonist poised for more in the upcoming sequel. (Fiction. 9-12) (Kirkus Reviews)
