Recommends it for: dog lovers
Though it's labeled #4, the events in this one actually take place before #3, so I decided to switch it up for continuity's sake. That's really the only problem. The rest of the book is a delight, as always, giving Santa Paws the freedom from #2's isolated setting so he can go back to his little rescue adventures - and this time with a lovable, feisty kitty friend!

Ellen Emerson White, writing as Nicholas Edwards, knows just how to appeal to young adult pet lovers, whether they are 8 or 18. Alas, with this book, she fell short of her previously high standards.

Her Santa Paws series are a collection of delightful novels in which Patricia and Gregory Callahan are teenagers who have a heroic dog with a knack for saving everyone in the slightest bit of difficulty.

In Santa Paws, Come Home, the third book in the series, Santa Paws is kidnapped by a pair of odio

I'm a little old for the Santa Paws books but they bring a smile to my face. This year I read the 3rd book in the series, "Santa Paws, Come Home". A lovely story about how the furry hero of Oceanport is "petnapped" by thieves. Being a German Sheppard/collie mix, Santa Paws is very smart. He's one of those dogs with a good sense of direction and a strong calling for home.

Both boys & girls will enjoy this heartwarming Christmas story, and it would even be good for a bedtime read-aloud.

Note to all. This is NOT the forth book in the series. It is the third book. Read this one first. I started reading "Santa Paws to the Rescue" thinking it was the third book. It started mentioning this book and I quickly changed to this book.

This is a great book. I enjoy reading these books every Christmas season. I hope you all like them too.

I absolutely loved this book! It was amazing. It was cute funny, and definately caught my attention. I think it caught my attention the most though is b/c I love dogs, and this whole book is based on a dog story.
It's nice to read, but only if your a dog lover.

I absolutely loved this book. It was cute, sad, suspenseful in some parts. I just plainly loved it. It was definitely one of the other best books I've ever read! And any dog lovers out there, I would seriously recommend reading it.

Not a bad Santa paws book. Not the best but not the worst. Alright. I felt though that it did drag on a bit most during his travels. And I felt like the kitten was introduced kind of late. But I do enjoy this book.
I'm still reading this silly little book, because I have no other good books at home and no time or car to go to the library! It would be fun for a fourth grader!

It was amazing. By the way, I think that kitten would have been cute. I'd feel sad too if my dog, Pepper, were stolen. Awesomeness. That's all.
