True story of a forgotten movie star. Strongheart was the first and it is said the best animal star on film. Sadly only one of his films survives. Strongheart was the first dog to receive a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. This picture book is beautifully written and accurately describes his life. It is well paced and not pedantic like other biography type picture books. An excellent read on a marvelous hero dog.
