Teddy, the Ghost Dog of Red Rocks (Soft back or Hard back)

5 out of 5 based on 1 customer rating
(3 customer reviews)


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.

    I like the Chapter book Teddy the Ghost Dog. It is an awesome nonfiction book to read. I like it when Teddy says he likes to sleep on the jaguar skin rug that Teddy Roosevelt gave to the White family.

    Just finished reading Teddy the Ghost of Red Rocks and enjoyed it thoroughly! Thank you so much for signing it. I’m now working on the Grandma’s Kansas Coloring Book quilt and having a wonderful time!

    This year we read about WAW in The Bully Pulpit, watched Ken Burns’ documentary The Roosevelts, AND uncovered a few more details of life in Emporia when we read Teddy, the Ghost Dog of Red Rocks. A chapter book for young people lets them get in on conversations about journalism and politics. I recommend it!
