"McEwan made her canine heroes almost human: these dogs think, reason, plot and plan. They feel the pain of both their canine and human friends and they share their feelings with their buddies through their barks and actions. Their “doggy dialogue” is as close to human dialogue as it gets and it’s so well done, it’s easy to forget at times that the protagonists of The Island Dog Squad are actually dogs... Clever writing indeed"
