9780439899925: Star in the Storm

Twelve-year-old Maggie Wells lives in the port village of Bonnie Bay in Newfoundland, where a statute has been passed outlawing all non-sheepherding dogs. Maggie swears she'll protect her beloved Newfoundland dog, Sirius, by hiding him if she must. Sirius is named after the brightest star in the sky, which is in the constellation of Canis Major, the Great Dog -- and he more than lives up to his name. He hauls firewood across the frozen bay to keep Maggie's family warm in the winter. He helps Pa fish in the cold Atlantic Ocean. And he saves Maggie when she's stranded near an iceberg. Sirius is an invaluable member of the Wells family, worth protecting at all costs. So when a terrific gale strikes the Newfoundland coast, forcing a steamer with one hundred people on board to founder, Maggie must make the hardest decision of her young life. She knows that her strong, brave dog can help the people on that steamer, but will bringing him out of hiding risk his life? Based on true stories about Newfoundland dogs, Star in the Storm is filled with drama, tension, and exciting rescues that will keep readers engrossed from start to finish. This heartwarming story of a lovable dog and his feisty mistress will find fans everywhere
