Here is more about the Gage Series:

AUTHOR: Darla Desiderio

INTRODUCTION: Darla Desiderio is the author of the Gage the Flying Whippet series—books written for children ages seven to ten. Her works include Gage the Flying Whippet (Book One), The Scrapper (Book Two), The Swan (Book Three), and the Gage the Flying Whippet Coloring Zine.

GAGE THE FLYING WHIPPET SYNOPSIS: This book takes the juvenile reader (ages seven to ten) on a thought-provoking journey with Sammie, a rising eighth grader with dyslexia. Faced with the reality of remedial summer-school math, Sammie feels frustrated and defeated, until she meets a magical canine friend to mentor her through life’s obstacles.

THE SCRAPPER SYNOPSIS: Garrett P. Murphy finds himself during the winter break of his eighth-grade year having to take care of himself because nobody else can. He struggles in the fast-paced New Jersey and New York City to support himself and his family after the loss of what should have been an established figure in his life. With the help of an unusual canine pal he names “Scrap,” Garrett discovers his own impressive resourcefulness and creates a small repair business. He is pushed to survive, finding help from places he never could have imaged.

THE COLORING ZINE: Travel to imaginary places with this unique coloring zine, a mini coloring magazine that features the black-and-white chapter illustrations from the Gage the Flying Whippet series of books. Young readers can engage with the characters and scenes depicted in the series as they color each of the twenty-five beautiful illustrations. The zine also contains designated drawing pages, so children may sketch the content of their imaginations while reading about Gage’s special dog wisdom. Each page is framed so the finished creation can be cut out and given as a gift. Dream big dreams with this coloring zine!
