9781580894159: War Dogs: Churchill & Rufus

Winston Churchill, the prime minister of England during World War II, was one of the greatest wartime leaders of the modern era. While he is often likened to the English bulldog due to his tenacious personality and even his physical resemblance to the breed, Mr. Churchill was actually a devoted poodle owner and held quite an affinity for his miniature poodle, Rufus, who withstood the trials of World War II by his owner’s side.

Readers follow Rufus and Winston’s friendship through major events in World War II—from the bombings of London and the invasion of Normandy to post-war reconstruction. Secondary text includes quotes from Churchill himself—taken from his rousing speeches to the people of England and to the world. Backmatter includes a timeline of World War II, an author’s note about Churchill’s pets, as well as a short biography, quote sources, and a list of recommended resources for further study.

In her debut picture book, Kathryn Selbert has created a unique look at a significant historical figure and period in world history.

About the Author:

Kathryn Selbert is a recent graduate of Rhode Island School of Design. WAR DOGS is her first children’s book. She lives in Fairfield, Connecticut.

From Booklist:

Winston Churchill might have been known as the British Bulldog, but in truth he was best friends with a miniature poodle named Rufus. When WWII comes crashing down on London, the small dog bears witness to Churchill’s efforts as prime minister. Although the book is not told strictly from Rufus’ point of view, first-time author Selbert uses the dog as an identifier for readers. Her illustrations, which incorporate orange-brown tones similar to the color of the little poodle, have a softness about them that seems at odds with harsh wartime realities. But as the story works toward its conclusion, which is not so much about the end of the war, but how the two war dogs can finally rest, Selbert nicely shows the immense pleasure and support a human can take from a friendship with an animal. An author’s note at the end discusses Churchill’s long relationship with poodles, as well as a brief overview of Churchill’s place in history. There is also a time line of WWII and an impressive selection of further resources and sources consulted. Grades 2-4. --Kara Dean
