Description

In the tradition of Robert Service's poetic tall tales, Dave Paddon's Ralph, Flying Hound brings readers a hilarious recitation about a dog that just won't give up. Along with his canine comrades, Ralph chases anything that moves, and usually catches it too. But when his aspirations go skyward, even his four furry friends— Nance, Lucky, Spot 1 and Spot 2—wonder if Ralph's aiming too high. Will Ralph catch that big orange duck? Will pilot Greg ever get those crazy dogs out of his hair? And how did those mutts end up in the drink?

An accomplished reciter and storyteller, Dave Paddon has crafted a fabulous "dog-bites-helicopter" tale, told with his signature warm and quirky wit, and inspired by a true story.
