Meet Snaggs, the yorkie mix. After his life on Earth is done, Snaggs crosses the Rainbow Bridge and wakes up

in Summerland – the place our beloved pets and other animals go to after they die. Snaggs is determined to find a way back home to his family.

He courageously leaves the safety of the idyllic Garden of Souls and embarks on a fantastical journey in his quest to Spire Mountain where he seeks Shaman the old ram who, according to legend, can help Snaggs rejoin his family back on Earth. Along the way he forges friendships with other animals, such as a ring-tailed lemur, a mountain lion and a giant pterodactyl. Getting back requires a dangerous trek to the kingdom of the dragons, where unbeknownst to Snaggs and his diverse band of allies, there is a revolution brewing and a prophecy that is about to come full circle.

Let’s talk about some of the main characters.

The star, of course, is Snaggs! Snaggs is a plucky little Yorkie Terrier mix who is determined to find a way back home to his family. Snaggs is small but very brave. During his life on Earth he had many health issues, but he never let them stop him from living his best life. That courage serves him well when he decides to trek to Spire Mountain! Snaggs is witty and likes to use “gallows humor” a lot. He has a fierce love for his family.

Raptor is a super cool character. He’s a pterodactyl, and he is NOT what you’d expect. I don’t want to tell you too much and spoil it for you. He’s feathered, funny and he has a quirky thing with fruit! He is Snaggs’s strongest ally who will be put to the test when he meets Lucar.

Lucar is the ultimate bad guy. He’s a mongrel dragon, dripping with oily wickedness. Snaggs is the wrench in Lucar’s diabolical plan to steal the throne of Royal Volcano.

The overall message of the book is one of love and perseverance. I think it also touches on the values of love of family, friendship, diversity and cooperation to overcome obstacles. In the story, Snaggs pulls together a little band of rather unlikely allies… different animals and even different species work together to help Snaggs in his journey.
