Book Review - Santa's Rescue Dog (Super Speed Sam Book 5) by Monty J McClaine

Book Review
Santa's Rescue Dog (Super Speed Sam)
by Monty J. McClaine

Book Description
***Winner of 5th Annual Beverly Hills Book Awards in the “Holiday” category.*** 

The McClaines faithful basset hound, Sam, knows how to use his super speed powers, even in a pinch, keeping it top secret from everyone except for baby Molly, of course. What he does NOT know is how these powers started… that’s a big secret to him! 

Sam knows it’s a ‘family thing’, having been passed down through generations of ‘Sam’s’ from long ago, he doesn’t know why, where, how or what got these amazing abilities started. Well, hold onto your seats because in this extra special Super Sam episode, you’re about to find out! 

Whether following Santa and his reindeer on their highly eventful Christmas Eve journey, discovering a special ‘sleigh recovery’ team of elves or meeting Sam’s great, great, great (add a whole bunch of ‘greats’), you won’t be able to put this holiday special down! 

Read the exciting, humorous and sometimes tearful special Christmas episode, Santa’s Rescue Dog to find out! Sam might not know where his secret abilities come from, but now you get the chance to uncover the truth of the mystery in this fun, sweet, adventurous ‘Sam’ story!

Hubbie's Book Review
The fifth book in the series where we meet Sam the basset hound who has inherited special abilities. In this particular episode Sam has to come to Santas rescue. The story is full of fascinating facts about christmas and where the legends come from that have been passed down through the generations. 

The book is written in easy to read text for both a young reader and parent to enjoy together with nice short chapters. Excellent illustrations at the beginning of each chapter bring this fun story to life. 

The style of writing and cute pictures took me back to my childhood and the books I used to read with my parents and I am sure once these stories are discovered they will be cherished and shared by families and passed down to generation after generation.

About the Author
Monty J McClaine
Proud winner of the 5th Annual Beverly Hills Book Awards in the “Holiday” category for Super Speed Sam - Santa's Rescue Dog. 

I feel that some of the natural interactions between family and friends are gradually eroding, if not already completely worn away for some. And I was reminded of a C.S.Lewis quotation - 

 “A children's story that can only be enjoyed by children is not a good children's story in the slightest.” 

It also feels like the simple joy of laughing or crying among family and friends is being replaced by beeps, bops and demands to ‘add new features’ or ‘why doesn’t this work?’ or ‘who’s hogging the Wi-Fi?’. 

So I set out to create a fun and exciting series of children’s short stories, with lots of adventure and splashes of humor, all paced to hold children’s attention whether reading or listening… at least that’s my hope! 

Stories that will delight both boys and girls, the young and old, and, of course, moms and dads! Tales that allow a return to simpler values, kid-like imagination for both children and adults and, I sincerely hope, bring families closer together.

  1. Awww...that sounds like a great story! What a fun book to give for the holidays, or even before. :)

  2. I enjoy light hearted books that I can read to the children, with them or even by myself. This one has some intrigue and mystery to it which makes it better.

  3. This sounds like an adorable book that I would probably enjoy as well. I bet my grand niece would LOVE this book (as would her Mom).


Always lovely to hear your comments xx
