The Beach Puppy - Holly Webb, ill. by Ellie Snowdon
A charming quick read about the arrival of a new sausage dog puppy (Coco) to a family, and the ensuing adventure as they visit the beach.
The sights, smells and seaside are so exciting that Coco gets lost, and Ruby and her family have to search to find her and be reunited.
Beautiful, colourful illustrations accompany this lovely, fun tale, and are sure to delight readers, whether moving on to read this independently ( it's part of Barrington Stoke's 'Little Gems' series, so ideal for this stage) or if being read together. We loved looking at the fun pictures to see if there were things we recognised from our own beach trips!
Messages of care, love and family are threaded through the book, which is set in clear, easy to read type, as expected from Barrington Stoke stories.
A perfect summer, seaside story, 'The Beach Puppy' is available to order from barringtonstoke.co.uk now.
