About the Book

As mascots, messengers, rat-catchers and even spies, animals have long marched into war alongside servicemen and women. Dogs, horses, cats (even birds, camels and elephants) have saved thousands of lives through instinct, intelligence, courage and devotion.

Like Jet, a dog who searched through ruins during the Blitz bombings to find survivors, or Sergeant Stubby, a dog who caught a spy. Or the pigeons who braved hurricanes, hawks and even snipers to help during WWII ...

Engaging, uplifting and deeply moving, Jet the Rescue Dog tells the stories of these brave, silent heroes with sensitivity and gentle humour for readers age 8+. With black and white illustrations throughout.

  • David Long

    Writer and historian David Long is the author of the acclaimed Animals' VC: For Gallantry and Devotion and the Blue Peter award-winning author of SurvivorsHeroes and Rescue, which have total combined sales of 50,000 copies. He lives in Suffolk and has two teenage sons.

    David says: I wrote to a few of my favourite authors when I was at school. I was genuinely delighted when they wrote back to answer my questions. I didn’t collect autographs or anything like that but I loved finding out more about the books I most enjoyed. I think I probably imagined they would find the letters tiresome, or that they wouldn’t want to be interrupted, but most seemed to enjoy hearing from their readers. I know I do. It is one of the things I like most about being a children’s author, and engaging with readers in this way is a constant delight.

“Full of inspiring and amazing real tales of animals in war...it's a must read for animal lovers.”
- WRD
