Sammy The Spaniel And So The Story Begins by Rusty Godwin is a charming book, perfect to be read to young children or for more confident readers to read themselves.
There are several tales within the book about Sammy and ten year old twins Steven and Sarah.
Each chapter is a new adventure for Sammy – going to the beach, on a farm, bonfire night, Christmas and more. All are very charming tales as we experience life from the point of view of Sammy, although the book is written in the third person.
The illustrations are simply done but a lovely accompaniment to the tales. Sammy is such a cute, small puppy.
I absolutely loved the book. The tales were totally delightful. I think they would translate well into a children’s television series and with accompanying merchandise – I would certainly love a cuddly Sammy.
I can recommend this book to all with young children.
I received a free copy from the publishers. A favourable review was not required. All opinions are my own.
