As Toby’s mentor, his owner felt Lucky’s passing couldn’t go unmarked. Thus, this delightful story (Fantasy Farm Tales Book 6) is dedicated to Lucky’s final days, told from the point of view of Toby, the border collie.
Losing a family pet can be a terrible experience for children and the author has skillfully penned this story with the aim of gently explaining the process so they may be able to come to terms with their loss.
As I did, I’m certain young readers will be comforted by Lucky’s story, and view it as a celebration of his “lucky” and beloved life, rather than some painful account of his death.
I particularly loved the author’s note about the southern African Zulu and Ndebele people, who believe that the stars are their dead ancestors watching over them. And how, each time she looks up to the night sky, she remembers Lucky.
An endearing and heart-warming addition to Susan Keefe’s ‘Fantasy Farm Series’ which narrates the lives of her pets in their French home. Beautiful, heart-warming photos of her animals are included.
Susan's wonderful take on a pet's afterlife will be soothing in particular to young children, but offers even grownups a comfort in knowing that they're not the only ones who suffer at the loss of a pet, a valuable family member who can never be replaced.
This time it’s Lucky the elderly golden retriever whose story is told in Susan’s gentle, compassionate style – well, it’s actually the telling of his final few days and peaceful death. That might sound rather distressing to animal lovers of all ages, but believe me; it’s sad but not painful. Lucky has had a good long life, been much loved, and goes Gentle into the Good Night.
This is a very touching handling of what might have been a difficult subject for small children and the author narrates it in a sensitive, non-frightening manner.
And the symbolism she uses for Lucky’s departed soul is simply beautiful. Congratulations to her on another superb little book.
In this latest edition of Susan Keefe's books, she writes about the death of Lucky. I think she has done a wonderful thing with this book telling children about death.
I can only say: Susan Keefe has to keep on writing about her pets because in telling us about them, she is sharing them with us.
Such a heart-warming and touching story of a great loss, cherished memories and unforgettable friendships.
Toby's Tails is told through the dark, but glistening eyes of an adorable black and white Border Collie who takes his readers on a nostalgic journey of his friendship with his late and best doggy friend; and mentor, Lucky.
Lucky, a wise old Golden Retriever was sure to prepare and encourage Toby to be the watch-keeper of their family once he had passed on. And, through Lucky's words of wisdom, Toby learned the responsibility of being a watch-keeper of closeness, comfort and safety.
