I’m going to say this right now — Demo: The Story of a Junkyard dog is a new classic! Between the excellent story and the fabulous artwork, this graphic novel should take its place among the books that every children’s library should have on its shelves.
Do you need a present for a dog-loving child? Do you collect graphic artwork? Do you want a book that will help build the love of dogs in a child or children? Do you want to help fight Pit Bull fear among children? Are you or someone you know a Pit Bull supporter? Here is your book! Demo is at the top of my list as the children’s book that should be on holiday gifting lists!
But adults take note, Demo: The story of a Junkyard dog is for us too! It is a graphic novel with the power to speak to us as well. This is a touching story of a Pit Bull dog who only wants to be loved and ultimately saves the same people who rejected him. Jon Bozak’s writing powerfully speaks the Truth of a dog mislabeled and mistreated who still has the greatest capacity to love and forgive.
Scott Bruns’ artwork is spectacular! Demo is a work of art on both the literature and visual art levels. Seemingly simple yet stunningly emotive, the illustrations combine with the text to make Demo: the story of a Junkyard dog a book that will stay with you long after you close the glossy cover.
