Teddy, the Ghost Dog of Red Rocks (Soft back or Hard back)
Teddy, the William Allen White family’s fox terrier died in 1923. In this mix of history and imagination, the author uses Teddy’s ghost to tell his version of the family history. Family members, neighbors, and state historical society employees have experienced Teddy’s “presence” at Red Rocks to this day.
Using WAW’s own writings and historical accounts of his life, the author has created an engaging tale by filling in the blanks with her own knowledge of canine behavior and familiarity with the community of Emporia. Teddy the Ghost Dog is a chapter book appropriate for upper elementary and young adult readers.
