In Night of the Howling Dogs by Graham Salisbury, weird things keep happening to Dylan when his scout troop goes camping on an ancient lava flow. First, he sees Pele, a ghost dog who comes to warn of danger. Then he encounters Fred, the friendly shark with a hole in his fin. Finally, the danger arrives. One night Dylan is shaken awake by a terrible earthquake, and he must track down the other members of his scout group. Will they all survive?
This book is a page turner. It is loosely based on an incident that happened to the author’s cousin. There’s even a picture of the cousin with his scout troop on the volcano. Imagine living through an earthquake! What an adventure!!
