Gr 4-7-Maggie lives with Gran and has grown up helping in her veterinary practice at the Wild at Heart Animal Clinic. Now she is resentful that her grandmother expects her to help train some new young volunteers so that Maggie can concentrate on raising her grades. When several sick and malnourished young dogs are brought to the clinic, Maggie and the volunteers-in-training realize that there is a puppy mill nearby. They band together to gather information and develop strategies to track down the culprit and shut down the business, becoming friends in the process. Some pet-care facts from Gran's newspaper column are included after the story. Pet lovers will identify with the young characters as well as with their strong need to solve a real problem. Readers who enjoyed Betsy Duffey's "Pet Patrol" series (Viking) will be intrigued by the adventures of these youngsters.-Janie Schomberg, Leal Elementary School, Urbana, IL Copyright 2000 Cahners Business Information.
