What happens to the flea will definitely bring a smile to your face and hopefully teach the flea a lesson. Find out when you read the story told in rhyme what happens to poor Rodger and the flea. With friends like his it is no wonder author Jan Britland can create more and more adventures for our smart, talented and wonderful dog. Illustrations that are so realistic you can tell from the facial expressions on Rodger’s face that he is in pain. You might even feel like scratching. Rodger learns the true meaning of friendship, and the stories or chapters teach each of the animals the importance of loyalty, friendship, understanding and love.

Let’s hope Rodger and his friends come back for many more adventures and children in every elementary school read his stories. All of Jan’s books should be in the public library, home libraries, school libraries, and children’s hospitals and used for lessons in Character Education.
