I too am an animal lover and found the author's treatment and telling of this tale both sensitive and enchanting. Susan gives voice to to those beings that share our lives and exposes their mysterious, inquisitive and wonderful ways, showing us a better way to be in the world.
This is a story of love. It is set in France on a farm and revolves around Toby, a border collie puppy that comes to live there with a family that loves him dearly. He is immediately shown the ropes by Lucky an older Golden Retriever that had lost his companion. Through Toby's curiosity and adventures of discovery we get to meet everyone in their world in their own voice.; the goats, cats, foxes, hedgehog, dormouse, and so much more.
Toby's Tales journals his first year of life and makes me want to hear more of his evolving story. The book is filled with real-life information and exudes the personalities of each animal, the countryside and many other things that I had no idea about.
The love in this book is palpable and the kindness of the author comes through. I also found a quiet spiritual influence throughout the book which deepened the flavor and meaning of the stories.
Come and join Toby in an alluring story of his early life with is beloved family while learning about wildlife and domestic animals through the eyes and thoughts of a puppy. Highly recommended.
It's told from the point of view of Toby, right from being with his mother before he could venture out on his own to his first birthday. In between the experiences are endearing and at times extremely funny. The first car ride, the first visit to the vet, the sad day when he is clipped by a car and his introductions to the other animals is all told in a way that keeps you reading wanting to know more.
Kids will love the fact it's about animals and told from their viewpoint, including the other animals stories of how they found there way to where they are. It's also filled with wonderful pictures of real animals and nature that enhance the story.
I think any young child looking for a great book to keep him engaged will find this one to their liking.
In this engaging book we follow the life of Toby, the Border Collie from the moment the author, Susan and her husband catch sight of him as a little puppy when they visit a farm for another reason, until the end of his first year.
As everyone knows the first year in a puppy’s life is very important. When Toby arrives at Fantasy Farm which is in France, he is lucky enough to have a mentor in the form of Lucky an old Golden Retriever.
The ever inquisitive, Toby constantly asks Lucky questions about the domestic, and wild, animals and birds who live at the farm with them. As he bonds with Susan, through their walks in the forest which surrounds them, through Toby’s eyes, the natural world comes to life for the reader.
I loved all the wonderful color photographs in this book!
This story would be equally enjoyable for adults and children. It is entertaining, very informative and contains a wealth of knowledge on the natural world, conservation, and life in France.
