More informationAfter her parents’ hot air balloon goes down in the Himalayas, Heidy McCloud is sent to live with her uncle Hamish. At the airport, she releases a priceless dachshund from his cage, and the dog follows her to her new home. She names him Sam the Lion, and he quickly wins an important dog show. But another canine lives with Uncle Hamish, and Cassius the poodle will do anything to get Sam out of the picture. Framed by Cassius for a terrible deed, Sam is badly injured and sent into the wild. It takes three years, but Sam—now with a soup ladle for one leg—befriends other strays and plots his revenge as the prestigious Westminster Dog Show approaches. Best-selling author Berkeley Breathed is the Pulitzer Prize-winning creator of the Bloom County and Opus comics. His unmistakable sense of humor colors every moment of Flawed Dogs and is skillfully portrayed by award-winning narrator and stand-up comic Johnny Heller. “A moving tale about the beauty of imperfections and the capacity for love.”—Publishers Weekly,
“The various canine and feline players are an endearing mix of odd attributes and engaging personalities.”—Kirkus Reviews
