A group of scientists with ulterior motives experiments on dogs in a secret facility, but one day the dogs outsmart them, and seven of them escape. The dogs only have numbers for names and are brought to an animal rescue center. They meet Gilda, a dog-loving woman who develops a passion to protect this pack of dogs. She builds a bond with them, and in return, they open up to her. Over time, more people willing to rescue the other remaining dogs join their team. They conduct meetings, strategize, and work together to achieve their goal. Open Covert Canines by Jacqueline Pansy to find out if this posse of heroes will defeat their enemy and reunite the dogs.
Covert Canines has all the makings of a children's movie: comedy, adventure, and an engaging plot. Jacqueline Pansy showcases her creative and writing prowess in this unique tale. She provides an informative narrative that educates us about animal abuse. Pansy has humanized the dogs by giving them individual personalities and even has a chapter dedicated to this. Gilda giving the dogs names is a heartwarming scene that brought a tear to my eye. Her compassion and fearless personality are inspiring. Each person who stepped up to help in the mission displayed braveness. This sends a wonderful message to all the children who will engage with it. I also appreciated its consistent format; each chapter begins with a catchy title and an illustration. I loved all the beautiful pictures as they bring a visual element to the tale. Great story.
