People think dogs are responsible so Astro and our valiant team not only have to destroy the rats, but they also have to find out who created these terrible creatures and clear the name of The Organisation. If they don't the strong bond that exists between people and dogs may be ruined for all time: We won't find out how Indy stopped a dog-eating crocodile or why there's a dog that thinks his name is Stop It! Astro is a grey shaggy dog who works for a secret organisation that exists without detection and operates right under our very noses. Its sole purpose is to save dogs from neglect. It is manned by a tunnel digging terrier who carries a diamond encrusted nail file. A large dog for which the complexities of door handles are a complete mystery and who, instead, opens everything with his head. As well as, a commando, khaki wearing Blue heeler who is armed with a hunting bone and a smell grenade. And that's just to name a few!...

Astro's Adventures: Rampaging Rats Reviews
When giant metal rats start tearing up Melbourne City Airport, the dogs of The Organization come to the rescue. The Organization, completely staffed and run by dogs, is dedicated to promoting positive dog-human relations. Humans know nothing about it.If your middle-grade child loves dogs and reading about their antics, they will probably enjoy this book. Parts of the story are reminiscent of the movie Cats & Dogs. The best part of the book is the battle between the dogs and the mechanical rats. The dogs show cleverness and teamwork in their approach to combating the monsters. Another part of the story details trips by various "secret agent" dogs around Australia to spread the word among dogs that The Organization has no connection to the giant rat monsters. In one case, a group of dogs battles a crocodile. While these travels are amusing and informative about Australian geography, they seem tangential to the main plot.Rampaging Rats celebrates dogs and will make an entertaining read for middle-graders passionate about their pets.
When monster rats start destroying Melbourne Airport, people put the blame on dogs. The relationship between dogs and their humans is being destroyed so it’s up to the organization to solve the mystery of who is behind this heinous crime and restore the relationship between man and his best friend. Commander Rocky sends his operatives out across Australia to spread the word to the dogs of the country to be on their best behaviour as they work to discover just who is behind the devastation at the airport.Animal lovers (dog lovers at least) will love this crime-fighting organization of canines. I liked that each of the characters are based on real dogs and cats. The author has done all her own illustrations for the book.In Rampaging Rats we get to know some of the team members that we haven’t really gotten to know too well yet in the first two books as they are sent on their missions across Australia. Each of the dogs has their own personalities and though they are serious about their business, you’ll definitely see them as dogs because they continually do the things that dogs love to do – chase balls and sticks, run, pee on things – typical dog behaviours.The plot moves along quickly and is full of humour. Adults will enjoy the story as they read the book along with their child. The mystery is full of twists and turns and is sure to delight your middle-grade child.Rampaging Rats is available separately or part of a box set. I would recommend it for middle-grade readers. I gave this book 4 out of 5 stars.Thank you to the author who provided a copy of this book in exchange for a fair and honest review. A positive opinion was not required. All thoughts are my own.To see my complete review visit Shelf Full of Books http://kathrynsshelffullofbooks.blogs...
With an all-dog cast, this amusing story grabbed me right away. The dogs of the Organisation are on a special mission to destroy an infestation of mechanical rats. Though written for kids ages 7 and up (in my opinion), the story is not overly cute. It is a serious mission these dogs are on, and they don't take it lightly. The plot is easy enough for a child to follow, but also a fun read for grownups, making it a perfect book to enjoy together.The story is fun, and I found myself laughing out loud at times. I loved how the dogs were so professional but still maintained their true nature as dogs. Never once did they forget to bark at nothing, pee on things, steal food, and other typical dog behaviors. What I loved most was how each dog had its own unique personality, just as real dogs do. There are plenty of fun illustrations included as well. This tale is fun and light-hearted and perfect for kids.
This is another great little Astro story, with an excellent - and often entertaining - cast of characters. I loved it just as much as I've loved the others I've read from the series so far, and can't wait to read more! Unfortunately, I also had the same issue with it as I've had with the other books in the series: since the animals are supposed to be just like your average pets - though, admittedly, with a few extra talents - they should have the same physical capabilities, and not be able to do things that would require the use of thumbs without some sort of tool to compensate for their lack of opposable thumbs.
