After being dumped along the highway in New Mexico Jethro is rescued by Zelda, a newly transplanted New Yorker in need of a family. Jethro is happier than ever living on the mesa in Abiquiu until thunder scares him off into the high desert wilderness. On his runaway adventure Jethro faces a fear bigger than thunder, finds a best friend in an unlikely desert animal and falls in love for the very first time. But can Jethro find his way home? Whether you are young or old, city dweller or desert lover, Jethro's adventure will open your heart to the true meaning of home and the friendships needed to help us find our way.
Jethro the Runaway Puppy is a magical, fully illustrated children's book for young readers just starting chapter books or a wonderful read to book for younger children.
Jethro, frightened by thunder in the night skies over Abiquiu, New Mexico, dashes off into the high desert wilderness. Over the course of three days and nights, he undergoes a series of riveting and often tender encounters that, upon his return, open the reader’s heart to the true meaning of home and the friendships needed to take us there.
I was so captured by the story of Jethro. It made me feel I was inside the book right along with Jethro and all his beautiful friends. I didn't want it to be over!
What a beautiful message of love, caring and friendship. I felt like I was right there with Jethro on his adventures in Abiquiu. Such a touching story full of wondrous and insightful gifts.
I had the privilege of reading your book to my grandsons who were enthralled with the tale of Jethro as was I. We want more and more of the adventures of Jethro!
The story is wonderful as it teaches co-operation, kindness, environmental issues and hope.
I absolutely loved the story and following Jethro's journey.
Sweet story for your creative kids.
