Harry loves to race around the streets of Dog Town. When he stumbles upon the lost city of cats, he finds himself in a race against Dog Town’s fastest canine, Grizzly.
The winner of this race will have the power to save Cat World, or destroy it.
Harry wants to win, but there is one small problem. The race is in the ocean, and Harry is terribly afraid of water.
Can Harry overcome his fear of the water and save Cat Town?
Read an excerpt:
HARRY snapped himself out of the trance. “Run!” he yelled, and every dog did exactly that. But they took off in a disorderly fashion, like a handful of wound-up toys had been released onto a slippery surface. Kevin started running first, but he became caught up in chasing his tail. He twirled and twirled, creating a mini tornado. Teena barked so violently she propelled herself backwards. She only managed to stop when she bumped up against a six-foot-high stack of hubcaps. The metal discs came hurtling toward the dogs at an alarming speed. Harry saw Teena jump out of the way. Then she reached for Pablo’s collar. She tugged and tugged, but her brother’s feet might as well have been concreted to the ground. “Pablo!” Harry urged. He cried out again, more urgently this time. “Pablo! Run!” Pablo stared at the big dogs as though he was hypnotised. “Pablo!” Teena cried, pulling harder on his collar. By now, Kevin’s mini tornado had taken on a life of its own. Wispy tendrils clutched madly at anything in reach, but they grasped only air. Seemingly angered by this, the vortex pulled itself into the shape of a bowling ball and made a beeline for Pablo and Teena.
