Aimed at teaching kids proper nutrition, The Alley Pal Adventure Series by Cassy Eng, MS, RN, is a fun way to get parents and children to start thinking about their health. Truly, if an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure, this charming children’s fable is worth its weight. Sherman, a lanky and fretful mutt, is captivated by the children playing in the school yard near the alley where he lives with with his Alley Pals Gilbert, a lazy mouse, and Louise, a know-it-all alley cat. Sherman is a bit of a hypochondriac and begins a quest to learn more about children’s health in order to ensure his own. The more Sherman learns, the more frightened he is for Gilbert who is decidedly lazy and more than a little overweight. With help from Louise, who combs the school cafeteria dumpsters for healthy food remnants and hordes valuable tidbits of information on children's health and wellness, Sherman becomes armed with the facts, and the fact is everyone has to eat right and exercise in order to be healthy and strong.
