Review by: Brenna Pappert on July 31, 2014 :
Wilde Blue Sky has a winner with The Mice Meet a Hero. Mr Sky uses animals to relate what being an injured soldier means, but he, also, brings to light that there are "service" animals with our men and women in the military. War Dog, who returns from war injured after his master dies, meets Rolo and Squeak and proceeds to tell them his war stories. War Dog suffers from war injuries and misses his master. Rolo and Squeak proceed to befriend him. This is a children's story, but would be appreciated by adults as well. Wilde Blue Sky does not hide the trauma that War Dog goes through, but he writes it well so a child may have a question or two yet still be able to understand. Mr. Sky's stories are great for a parent and child reading together. I would totally recommend this to others.

Review by: James Field on March 14, 2014 :
I read this short story in 2014, one hundred years after the First World War started. This story is a reminder of war's atrocities and heartbreaks from a pet's eye view.
Well written and easy to read.
Although this is the third adventure in the excellent 'Mice' children's book series, I can't imagine children would find it interesting. The story's message is more suitable for adults, but I can't imagine why adults should want to read a children's book.
So we have a riddle here, who is the intended audience? Perhaps all of us, lest we should forget.

This story may not be just for young children, but for all the people of the world. When are we going to wake up to the fact that we are not red and yellow, black and white….but ONE…human race. The loyalty of one War Dog should be a lesson to us all. The story made me shed a tear or two.
