What people are saying about Action Lab: Dog of Wonder:

“Read it to your younger sibling, your dog, or just read it yourself and find a ray of hope in the smile of Action Lab himself and his selfless pursuit of helping dogs, who have been neglected by their owners even if it goes against the letter of the law.”

“I would recommend this for people looking for a light-hearted romp, and those who want something a little different from the usual superhero stuff.”
(A Place to Hang Your Cape)

With the right amount of humour and a very believable story, I cannot wait for the next instalment of Action Lab: Dog of Wonder! Hopefully it comes sooner rather than later!
(Other Worlds Than These)
