Mary Labatt is an award-winning author and editor. She writes children’s fiction full time and lives in Port Rowan, Ontario.From School Library Journal:
Grade 3-5-Fans of Mary Blount Christian's "Sebastian" series (Macmillan) or John Erickson's "Hank the Cowdog" books (Viking) will readily accept that Sam, a sheepdog, can communicate telepathically with 10-year-old Jenny. The seventh book in this slight and light series finds the pup bored with winter's confinement. After hearing about an Egyptian exhibit at the local museum and learning that the mummy is supposedly walking the earth looking for his white dog, Sam is sure that she is that dog. She and her human pals, Jennie and Beth, then concoct a plan to trap the mummy while eluding its curse. Readers will find a bit of slapstick humor in Sam's food preferences, which are quirky and definitely not canine. The writing is simple and the mystery is safe-not too scary, and very accessible for reluctant readers.
