    1. It is a very easy read, aimed, I think towards younger teens, but I really enjoy this whole series and have read it a before. There is lots of adventure and there is not a page that I felt bored or that I wanted to rush through but I would not call it a page turner. very enjoyable, good morals, I highly recommend this bookIt is about Tom and his dog Scout during the Nazi occupation of the Netherlands. Together they rescue a soldier, and later a young Jewish girl, who his family takes in as their [...]

    2. Really cool story of a boy named Tom and his German Shepard Scout, set in the Netherlands. The opening is action-packed—Tom goes after bandits, gets caught, and escapes with Scout's help. Then some years later the two and their friends resist the invading Nazis and work with the Canadian army to help liberate their town. The Christian angle is nice. I always enjoy stories of the Resistance during World Ear 2, and this book was no exception!

    3. Piet Prins' style is just perfect for adults reading to children. I read the whole Scout series to my little sisters, and they weren't the only ones enjoying it! They were all fun, adventure packed, and full of Christian lessons. Definitely recommend this book, and the rest of the series, for some light, fun reading.

    4. This was an exciting story of a boy and his German Shepherd dog in the time of Word War II. I enjoyed it extremely when I read it when I was about 10 or 11 years old. My brothers liked it too.4/28/11I read it a second time, and enjoyed it, but not quite as much as when I was a child. Still a good story with a bit of history.

    5. Another adventure set during Nazi occupation of the Netherlands. I read as many of these as possible. This one is great for ages 7-12. Concentrates a lot on the dog; it is he who remedies the dangerous situations. Yet, unlike most books for children, especially books where the animal is a hero, this book also concentrates on God's providence and protection.

    6. Eén van mijn vaders favorieten uit zijn jeugd, hij aarzelde dus geen enkele seconde om mij dit boek aan te bevelen toen ik rond de 10 jaar oud was. Vandaag de dag nog steeds goed te lezen, vooral voor kinderen die de oorlogstijd interessant vinden of uiteraard gewoon van honden houden. Naar mijn mening een tijdloze klassieker uit de Nederlandse jeugdliteratuur die zeker het lezen waard is!

    7. The writing isn't great, but I can see why my son enjoyed it so much that he insisted I read it. With themes of great courage, loyalty and God's protection, this book of constant adventure would appeal to almost any elementary-aged boy.

    8. My oldest received this book for Christmas and just gobbled it up! She just LOVED the suspense and adventure! She hopes to read the others in this series.

    9. Love these books! I don't usually like dog stories because they are overdone, but this is a rare jewel of a book.

    10. Although it is a translation, the author's voice still comes through. A compelling WW2 adventure that is especially moving if your ancestors lived in under German-occupation.
