Costello, Emily. Lonely Lamb, Animal Emergency #10 (published in 2001 by Avon Books, a division of HarperCollins Children’s Books). This book is listed as No. 10 in the “Animal Emergency” series. Stella Sullivan likes to help her Aunt Anya with the sick and wounded animals that turn up at her veterinary clinic near her home in Montana. However, her aunt is away and thus isn’t nearby when Stella needs to save a flock of sheep from an impending winter storm. Both our older son Mark, when he was about twelve, and my wife Karen read this book and said that it was good. Other books in the “Animal Emergency” series include Abandoned Puppy (#1, 1999); Ducks in Danger (#2, 1999); Bad Luck Lion (#3, 1999); Runaway Wolf Pups (#4, 1999); Rabbit Rescue (#5, 2000); Lost Kitten (#6, 2000); Hit-and-Run Retriever (#7, 2000); Frightened Fawn (#8, 2000); Pony In Trouble (#9, 2000); Kitten Crisis (2000); Otter Alert (2000); and Runaway Wolf (2000). Costello’s other series include Ballet School and Soccer Stars, and she has contributed to the series Full House Stephanie and Party of Five. Two other well known books by her are Realm of the Panther: A Story of South Florida’s Forests and VT (Vermont) Ski Share.
