Good Boy, Achilles - Book cover"Good Boy, Achilles!" (Eddie Ellis, Westbow Press) is based on the idea that, because we human beings are flawed and fouled-up, God has given dogs the task of helping us along. The story opens on a small farm, where a boy named Jeremy discovers that his family’s dog, Ginger, has finally given birth to her long-awaited puppies. Ginger explains to her puppies that they must leave the farm for new homes where they will take care of their own humans, for that is the Father’s plan. Jeremy’s parents tell him that the family can afford only one dog, Ginger, and will have to give the puppies away. As the story progresses, however, Jeremy and his favorite puppy, Thunder, or, as Jeremy calls him, Achilles, become best friends, and Thunder comes to believe that he will remain on the farm as Jeremy’s dog. Will he? On the way to finding out, he and Jeremy learn some basic Christian theology and some important life lessons.

"Kirkus Reviews" has described this book as ". . . sure to be inspirational for Christians, moving for dog lovers, and perfect for readers who are both. . . ."

Author's Note: 

What is God gave dogs a mission: take care of humans.

Quick Tips for Authors

Proofreading Trick

One way to proofread your manuscript is to read it aloud. It may sound strange, but it works. Reading aloud, especially to another person, makes us focus on each word individually. This is a good way to find and clean up those missing or extra of's, the's, and a's.
