This is a beautiful story about a dog who finds that special friend; one who can play with him or just sit with him and the day feels complete.
I really enjoyed this story. It is written in a language that is perfect for younger children, and is illustrated by Rosalind Beardshaw who has created a loveable dog, who looks well loved, although a little scruffy. It has a great moral for children and could be used as a great teacher's resource when talking about friendship and the importance of having a good friend.
I would recommend this as a great book to give as a gift to a young child. I am sure that it is going to become a very popular story time book for many children.
Thank you to the publishers, Nosy Crow, for sending me the book to review.
