Review by Endija, aged 10

"This book is based on the true story of a dog called Joyful Trouble. Thereare three main characters: five year-old Tommy, his nine-year-old sister Anna, and their grandad. When they see a Great Dane in a parade,Grandad tells the kids the story of a dog he loved, called JoyfulTrouble. He remembers being in the Navy during WWII and meeting the dogon the way to work one day.

Joyful Trouble was a mischievous butvery helpful dog. The seamen got to know and love him and the dog wassoon part of the crew. Joyful Trouble and Grandad were good friends andwere put to work together. Along the way, the dog meets new friends,loses old ones and still is very happy. He causes a lot of trouble(that's how he got his name) but also stops fights and commotion. Inthis book, Grandad is the story-teller and Anna and Tommy are the veryeager listeners.

I love this book and it made me happy and, atsome parts, sad. It is also a bit funny. The reason I love it so much is because I love dogs and true stories. I hope others will also enjoy it. I would recommend it for ages 8+."

From the Author

I've often watched my parents interact with my children and noticed, with amazement, that special bond between them everyone talks about. It is an invisible string that makes them smile as soon as they lay eyes on each other and it pulls them together in a fun activity filled with laughter and giggles.

My mother is the one they would want for pretend games, yet it is my father they prefer for story time. Perhaps because grandfathers, with their solid appearance, are nothing but gentle giants when it comes to their own grandchildren and, admit it, nothing can compare with a grandfather's ability to mimic someone else's voice!

I still remember my own grandfather telling my cousin and I a story with Prince Charming which used to pick his nose :)

Ana and Tommy's Grandad from "Joyful Trouble" is just like this. 

"Joyful Trouble" is a fun, heartfelt book for young and old.
I hope you will enjoy reading it as much as I loved to write it.
