9780981618807: Demo: The Story of a Junkyard Dog

Everybody loves an underdog, but what happens when the underdog looks scary? Find out in this action-packed, green-themed adventure, where looks can be deceiving and heroes have to work hard to get noticed!

Demo’s a good dog, but good doesn’t cut it at Junkyard Joe’s junkyard, where only bad attitudes, bad luck and bad smells prevail. Joe is fed up with Demo’s friendliness and he’s doubly irritated by the people of Newton, USA, a town of shopaholics whose trash has overtaken his yard. Joe decides to dump Demo out onto the streets of Newton and hatch a diabolical plan to turn the tables on the unsuspecting town.

Outside the yard, Demo’s rugged junkyard appearance has everyone convinced he’s a danger to their safety, and their shopping. Not until Joe unleashes his monstrous Newton Solution to Pollution Machine does Demo get the chance to show the kind of dog he truly is.

A modern fable that gently pokes fun at our throwaway society, Demo encourages readers to reconsider the things they might otherwise dismiss as disposable, while inspiring them to root for the underdog no matter what his appearance may be.

Review:

"I love this book. My niece and nephew love it. Demo is completely suspenseful, with a truly heroic dog in the lead and a terrific message. This book is great, and deserves to sell heaps."  —Elizabeth Gilbert, author, Eat, Pray, Love: One Woman's Search for Everything Across Italy, India and Indonesia



"A cross between Dr. Seuss and hipster Japanese anime, Demo: The Story of a Junkyard Dog is an instant classic for dog lovers of all ages."  —The New York Post

"Demo's tale will definitely intrigue dog-loving kids of most ages, and for older kids, there's a lot to discuss, from bias, to dog adoption, to consumerism."  —Martha Garvey, author, My Fat Cat and My Fat Dog

"Well written by Jon Bozak and beautifully illustrated by Scott Bruns. Like all of the best children's books, Demo not only tells a fun story but also teaches a valuable life lesson."  —John Ross, author, Adoptable Dog, Dog Talk, and Puppy Pre-School

"Fantastic artwork coupled with a sharp, engaging message, this book will rivet children and give adults cause to ponder their attitude toward prejudice."  —Diane Jessup, author, The Dog Who Spoke with Gods

"A charming, fun little book."  —HearSay with Cathy Lewis, WHRV Public Radio



"Congratulations to Jon Bozak and Scott Brun for their incredible achievement on behalf of our dogs." —thebullybeat.org



"The illustrations are very vibrant and colorful—akin to a graphic novel. An automotive purist will enjoy the classic lines of the cars (when was the last time you saw tail fins on a car?)"  —bookideas.org
