Bagels Come Home

Orca Book Publishers | Orca Echoes


When eight-year-old Josh and his family adopt an energetic puppy with a big personality and a talent for escaping, everyone is sure that obedience school will teach him good manners. But Bagels turns out to be a bigger handful than anyone predicted. He gets into the laundry, the groceries and the neighbor’s koi pond. He even gets expelled from obedience school. Josh and his little sister, Becky, are worried that if Bagels doesn’t shape up, their parents will send him back to the shelter. Can Bagels redeem himself before it’s too late?

---

"Accented with delightful illustrations that children will love. Pet owners will be able to relate to Bagels’ mishaps."

---

"A hilarious story that will greatly amuse young readers."

---

"This lively, easy to read novel will certainly attract the young reader's interest. Filled with humourous puppy antics as well as a sly cat in the background, this story is highly entertaining and fun. Included also in the story are some valuable messages for young readers, such as adopting a dog from a rescue shelter, and making sure that it is well looked after...A good read-aloud for the classroom, this short tale should promote lively discussion and more stories."

---

"Whimsical and humourous. The crazy adventures that Bagels gets into are close enough to reality that many dog-owning adults will be able to relate to this book as well...Readers will be left with the feeling of fun and mischief that only owning a dog can bring...The illustrations are funny and worth having a good long look at as you read."

---

"This engaging, entertaining and exciting story provides a lesson in how difficult it can be to take care of a dog. The value of tza’ar ba’alei chayim (proper treatment of animals) can certainly be reinforced by educators and parents while reading this tale."

“A fast-paced, funny story, perfect for first grade readers transitioning to a slightly longer, beginning chapter book. It will keep a young reader’s interest—in fact, even adults can become entranced…A great book!"

---

"Josh is eight when his family decides to adopt a dog in order to round out the pet names in their home. They already have a fish named Lox and a cat named Cream Cheese so, of course, they need a dog named Bagels!..Family relationships and pet responsibility themes are explored in this story...Bagels' escapades are fun to read about."

Trouble is, Bagels is up to his usual disappearing act. When he turns up unexpectedly on the cruise ship, Josh and his little sister, Becky, must keep Bagels hidden.

Bagels the Brave

Orca Book Publishers | Orca Echoes


In this sequel to Bagels Come Home, Josh, his younger sister, Becky, their parents and Bagels head off on a three-day trip to Sasquatch Lake. But the vacation gets off to a rocky start. The cabin is a bit more “rustic” than advertised, with a few too many holes in the roof. Then Josh starts catching glimpses of a hairy figure in the woods nearby. When household items begin disappearing, from pickles to pj’s to Becky’s birthday cake, the family heads out to investigate, with Bagels in the lead. Who’s behind the mysterious happenings at Sasquatch Lake? And could Sasquatches be real?

---

"With Josh’s bright and authentic first-person narrative, the appealing cast, and the zany illustrations, this fits the bill."

---

"Between Bagels’ frequent forays into the lake, the dilapidated cabin’s leaky roof, and an honest-to-goodness mysterious cave man, the trip is packed full of humorous shenanigans...A fun, whimsical read, with a touch of adventure...The Illustrations by Dave Whamond (“Oddrey”) are a fun comedic addition to the story. Recommended where early chapter books are popular or in short supply."

---

"Bagels' antics will have young readers laughing as he tries to protect his unaware family. Illustrations by Dave Whamond add to the meaning and laughter...This beginners' novel for primary grades contains humour and characters to which children of this age can relate. Bagels, the dog who is smarter than his family, will be a favourite of the young readers who meet him. Recommended."

---

“[A] delightful sequel…Another winning story beginning readers will thoroughly enjoy!”
