The story

The first book of five

     Some boys have rescue dogs. Not Norm. He is Burny's twelve-year-old rescue boy, and once he gets a tablet with an app that does magic, Norm needs a lot of rescuing. Burny's good sense saves him from situations no sensible boy would get into.
     Imprisoned by a band of camel-riding desert dwellers, for stealing a magic carpet? Burny to the rescue. And that's only one of Norm and Burny's many wild adventures.
     Third graders who are strong readers should be able to read this book themselves, and adults laugh as they read it to younger children. Its humor and illustrations make it a pleasure for a reader of any age.
