Middle Grade Review: Lily to the Rescue: Foxes in a Fix (W. Bruce Cameron)
About This Book:
Lily lives with her girl, Maggie Rose. Once a stray, Lily was rescued by the kind people at the animal shelter run by Maggie Rose’s mom. Now she has a very important purpose: to rescue other animals in trouble.
When a litter of arctic foxes escape from the zoo and must be found before they get into a fix, it’s Lily to the rescue!

In addition to the excitement of the fox pups escaping, there is the adventure of going to Alaska and working with the sled dogs. Mr. Martin's back story, with information about the three legged dog he had as a child, added another level to the story, and his sadness over losing his pet may help young readers process a similar experience.
Readers who aren't quite ready for Johnson's Dog Driven or Gary Paulsen's adventure books will find a lot to like in this series for younger readers. Even though I haven't read the first six books in the series, it was easy to pick up the storyline. I'm curious to investigate the other adventures that Maggie Rose has.
