Books About Dogs Nab Children's Book Award



     EMPORIA, Kan. - Books about a guinea pig who thinks she's a dog and a sixth-grader who helps a neglected dog have won William Allen White Children's Book Awards. Emporia State University announced the winners in a news release Thursday. Given since 1952, the award is one of only a few that asks young readers to pick the winners.
     "Guinea Dog" by Patrick Jennings won in the third- through fifth-grade category. It's about a boy who wants a dog but is given a guinea pig instead. 
     "Ghost Dog Secrets" by Peg Kehret won in the sixth- through eighth-grade category. It recounts what happens when a boy starts caring for a dog left chained in frigid weather with no food, water or shelter.
     The authors have been invited to an Oct. 5 awards ceremony in Emporia.
