ARC Arrival: The Adventures of Snip in Oregon

The Adventures of Snip in Oregon by Betty Moir, Yumi Vong - Illustrator

Publisher: BookSurge, LLC

I received this book from Bostick Communications and the author. Thank you Mrs. Moir!

About the book: Author Betty Moir in The Adventures of Snip in Oregon recounts the tale of a lovable shaggy dog as he wanders into the hearts of the Moir Family and their daily lives in the peaceful countryside. Ms. Moir paints a colorful portrait of "home life" in the Northwest during the 70's in these first five chapters introducing Snip.

This is the first in a sequel about this lovable black shaggy dog named Snip who is a half malamute and poodle cast away dog. Snip teaches family values and love.

Snip captures your heart as he teaches driving, chases away skunks and raccoons and
engages in daily mischief. Snip loves to visit neighbors and spend time with the nesting duck named Lucky who lives by his owner's front door steps. This children's book offers pictures of family life on a small farm in Oregon showing how a family weaves their lives together with love and mutual respect and work with Snip and the family animals. Snip's adventures seek an audience of young children readers. (from publicity information from Bostick)

After 15 happy years in the Northwest, Betty and Jim encompassed the Bay area, Honolulu, Guam and the West Pacific with their businesses.

Betty continues to reminisce about Snip and the family in Oregon and plans on sharing more adventures. (from the back cover)
