About the Author:

Blake Hoena grew up in central Wisconsin, where he wrote stories about robots conquering the moon and trolls lumbering around the woods behind his parents house. He now lives in St. Paul, Minnesota, with his wife, two kids, a dog, and a couple of cats. Blake continues to make up stories about things like space aliens and superheroes, and he has written more than 70 chapter books and graphic novels for children.

Oliver Hurst has been the illustrator on a number projects including, variously, record sleeve artwork, Napoleonic battle scenes and children's books. He works (semi) traditionally using water mixable oils on board or canvas and takes inspiration from realism, imagination and historical reference.  Oliver lives and works in Bath, UK. He likes electric guitars, reading, and walking in the Tatra mountains of Poland.

From School Library Journal:

Gr 2-5-These picture books retell the stories of famous animals. Sgt. Reckless and Stubby were war heroes, while Laika was the first creature to be sent into outer space, and Scarlett rescued her kittens from a burning building. Only Laika portrays a title animal who did not survive the call to duty-but does so gently and honestly. An "Afterword" in each title provides a photo and update on what happened after the main events, except for Scarlett, which describes the aftermath of her rescue in the main text. Illustrations vary across titles. Most are realistic, although the cartoon faces of the people in Sgt. Reckless are jarring compared with the realistic treatment of the horse. The quality of the back matter is inconsistent. Collections that already have Hero Cat (Two Lions, 2011) won't need Scarlett, and the slightly more advanced Stubby the War Dog (National Geographic, 2014) may trump Stubby. Larger libraries or those in need of more titles on heroic animals may find this series of use.α(c) Copyright 2014. Library Journals LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc.
