Togo ws one f my favorite Dog Diaries because it was factual but fiction at the same time. Historical fiction is probably my second favorite type of book because it tells you about true events that aren't so true. Kate Klimo did an excellent job writing this story and I would absolutely here it again!
A sweet kids' book that recounts a key chapter in Alaskan history and also offers a bit of insight into life during Territorial days. Written from the scrappy dog of the title's perspective. Plenty of humor and adventure make this one a good selection for early primary grade readers.
