The first book tells about Toby's first year of life and how he was trained to be a proper border collie. In this book, readers are treated to adventures on the farm throughout the seasons from spring, summer, autumn and back to winter. Toby meets Scarlet, a squirrel who introduces us to her drey and new babies. On a car trip, Toby explains what log lorries are, we meet some bees in the meadow pollinating plants, and noisy baby goats who are growing fast. Young readers learn about the differences between a mouse and a vole, the arrival of the swallows and the wrens. At the market, mum buys fresh vegetables and guinea fowl. Of course, there must be a mystery adventure. When Henrietta, a brown hen is missing, Toby is on red alert. Readers learn about rabbits and how they breed in the spring. Toby has quite a strange experience when the family decides to go on a picnic and Mum has an interesting experience with stick insects. Mum is excited when a horse named Marine comes to live on their farm. As the season turns to autumn, the slow worms emerge to do their work. In practically no time at all, frost has returned and winter is just around the corner. How will the animals on the farm adapt and change?
Love this approach to teaching children about animals and life on a real farm in the countryside. The photos are beautiful and charming. This chapter book of a little more than fifty pages could be broken up in sections as a classroom read aloud. There is a lot of information packed within the pages. Perfect choice for an eight to ten year old who loves animals.
I recommend this book to animal lovers of all ages. The tale is a short, quick read that will leave you feeling good!
Susan Keefe writes Toby’s story in his own voice which adds a hundredfold to the charm of these two books.
Toby is now a little older and a little wiser and quite caring toward his little friends like Lucky. He does though get a little impatient when Lucky sleeps a little too much.
I think that if our pets could express their thoughts in our human language then we will learn that they do indeed think like Toby.
A fan of this dog – I wish I need not call him a dog – I am looking forward to the third book in the series.
Like the first book this one too will be marvellous entertainment for a child, but adults, I know, will find it too a delightful read.

We loved the original Toby’s Tails, and so I couldn’t wait to read its sequel Still Wagging to my two boys.Read more
