Night of the Howling Dogs by Graham Salisbury

syndetics-lcIn 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!!
