First Friend by M. Elaine Mielke, Illustrated by Allan F. Mielke


This is the story of the special friendship between Franklin Delano Roosevelt (FDR), one of our greatest presidents and his beloved, little black Scottish terrier, Fala, who was famous in his own right for his winning personality, mischievous adventures, and travel, far and wide, by car, train, boat, and plane with President Roosevelt, as well as for his role in the war effort during World War II. Fala and his antics were so famous Hollywood made a movie about Fala, starring Fala.
The book tells the story of these devoted friends from Fala’s point of view. Fala was almost always by the President’s side, and FDR, the ultimate busy person, always made time for and looked after Fala.
