The Dog Who Saved the World by Ross Welford | Waterstones

This kind of dystopic vision is common in teenage literature, to place it into a juvenile novel is brave and daring, but Welford has shown excellent judgment with similarly grown-up issues previously. When she appeared in the story, she simply came along and swept the story along to where it had to go.Family life as perceived by children is explored and again gives the story its humour and poignancy. Multiple issues mesh nicely in this story of a girl and her adopted dog, as a canine-carried virus begins to take hold of the world, just as Georgie and her best friend meet a scientist who needs them to test a virtual reality experiment that can take them into the projected future. A lovely genuine friendship between Georgie and Ramzy - Ramzy will literally go through dogsh*t for his best mate but is strong enough to stand up to Georgie when they disagree. The world of Mr Mash, the adopted dog who inadvertently becomes key to the global pandemic that could kill both dogs and humans, is our own, and scarily so, as we watch the start of a virus. They know they are doing the wrong thing when they agree to go to the strange lady’s house at the start of the book but along with other situations throughout, this doesn’t stop them and I think as a read aloud this presents lots of opportunities for discussion.

Emilia Pretorius, the woman who swims daily on the beach, and whose swim cap Mashie eats, is another diverse character.The time travelling element of the story is fun and frightening for the intrepid pair and is entertaining reading. The fictional “Canine-borne Ebola” (CBE) originates in China and spreads rapidly, first through dogs and then “jumping” to humans. The Dog Who Saved the World tells the story of 11 year-old Georgie who must travel to a virtual, 3-D future with her beloved rescue dog, Mr Mash, to bring back a cure for a deadly disease that threatens the whole of humanity. Ebooks fulfilled through Glose cannot be printed, downloaded as PDF, or read in other digital readers (like Kindle or Nook). Mash off his leash, and he’d run down the steps and across the sand to the shore, where he likes to try to eat the white tops of the little waves.


As a preschool teacher, I can relate to the importance of the early years, which can have a lifelong impact on our children.For England football fans, 1966 is a year they'll never forget - it was the year they won the World Cup.
