Smashwords book reviews by The Golden Pen

  • Hunting Elf, a doggone Christmas story on Jan. 20, 2011

    Hunting Elf is a delightful tale about a silky terrier named Elf who is dog napped by breeders in a dog show. I can imagine the lead character, Dan McCoy, played by Ed Rooney, the principal in Ferris Buller Day Off. What would make the book even better would be some illustrations. This is a children's book, no doubt. The font is large enough for any child to read it. Elf isn't just a tiny, silky Terrier, though...he's the son of a famous Dog Show winner. I enjoyed this book very much. This is a book to read at any age.
