Over 100,000 copies sold A true story of a marine and the miraculously loyal dog he befriends in Iraq. Nubs, an Iraqi dog of war, never had a home or a person of his own. He was the leader of a pack of wild dogs living off the land and barely surviving. But Nubs's life changed when he met Marine Major Brian Dennis. The two formed a fast friendship, made stronger by Dennis's willingness to share his meals, offer a warm place to sleep, and give Nubs the kind of care and attention he had never received before. Nubs became part of Dennis's human "pack" until duty required the Marines to relocate a full 70 miles away--without him. Nubs had no way of knowing that Marines were not allowed to have pets. So began an incredible journey that would take Nubs through a freezing desert, filled with danger tofind his friend and would lead Dennis on a mission that would touch the hearts of people all over the world. Nubs and Dennis will remind readers that friendship has the power to cross deserts, continents, and even species.Binding Type: HardcoverAuthor: Brian Dennis, Mary Nethery, Kirby LarsonPublisher: Little, Brown Books for Young ReadersPublished: 11/01/2009ISBN: 9780316053181Pages: 48Weight: 1.00lbsSize: 8.75h x 11.30w x 0.40dAward: NAPPA Gold Awards - WinnerAward: Golden Sower Award - WinnerAward: Christopher Awards - WinnerAward: Maine Student Book Award - WinnerAward: Kentucky Bluegrass Award - WinnerAward: Capitol Choices: Noteworthy Books for Children and Teens - RecommendedAward: Volunteer State Book Awards - WinnerAward: Colorado Children's Book Award - WinnerAward: Delaware Diamonds Award - NomineeAward: Delaware Diamonds Award - WinnerAward: Washington Children's Choice Picture Book Award - WinnerAward: Buckaroo Book Award - WinnerAward: California Young Reader Medal - WinnerAward: Maryland Blue Crab Young Reader Award - Honor BookAward: Show Me Readers Award - WinnerReview Citations: Booklist 10/01/2009 pg. 42Kirkus Review - Children 10/15/2009Publishers Weekly 11/09/2009 pg. 45People Weekly 11/16/2009 pg. 93School Library Journal 12/01/2009 pg. 97Hornbook Guide to Children 01/01/2010 - Below Average, With Minor FlawBookPage 11/01/2009Accelerated Reader Quiz #/Name: 131872 / Nubs: The True Story of a Mutt, a Marine & a MiracleReading Level: 4.8 / Interest Level: Lower Grade / Point Value: 0.5
