Who will help her in her struggle to survive?

At the end of the story the author (a 20-year reading teacher) has included a small nonfiction section describing the characteristics of the breeds featured in the story. This is also an excellent resource for the teaching or review of text features. There is also a section for parents describing activities they can do with their children to enhance reading skills. These activities can be used with any text.
