Goodreads Book Review

Olly : The Top Security Dog (Olly The Jack Series Book 1)Olly : The Top Security Dog by Chris Turnbull
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

No rest for a Jack on a mission.

Olly is no slouch, he takes his job very seriously. When things go missing around his home he is soon out on the trail. He’s a quick little Jack and wastes no time hunting high and low.

He runs round the neighbourhood interviewing all his doggy pals. He even tracks down the cat in the pub.

This is a delightful, rythmical read with beautiful bright illustrations. A real treat for the young and those simply young at heart like me. Dog lovers check it out. Very highly recommended.

If you’ve not checked out Emy’s story based on true events, I would recommend this too.

Today I am wishing Peter Bently, Steven Lenton and Nosy Crow a Happy Publication Day for their new title, Octopus Shocktopus!

Octopus Shocktopus! - Nosy Crow

In this lovely, community-minded story, a giant octopus lands on a house in a town and everyone is surprised and rather thrilled, apart from Mrs Antrobus, who’s not impressed.

The Octopus soon makes many friends and the townspeople learn to value its contributions as they embrace it as one of them. Even Mrs Antrobus is persuaded that the eight-legged creature has a place amongst them after it saves her cat. But then one day Octopus disappears and everyone feels bereft. Where has their tentacular friend gone?

This is a funny, inspiring and ultimately happy story about friendship, accepting and celebrating differences, and building a community. Peter Bently’s rhymes are superlatively smooth and bring pace and hilarity to the story, while Steven Lenton’s bright and inviting illustrations suck you in…

#InternationalDayOfFriendship

Friendship Day On our way 01

International Day of Friendship

Today we had the great pleasure of offering our hand/paw of friendship to some wonderful residents in a local care home. We wrote a letter or card for each of the twenty nine current residents and then delivered them masked up, via the carpark of the home. We gave the items to Clare the Activities Co-ordinator.

“The International Day of Friendship was proclaimed in 2011 by the United Nations General Assembly with the idea that friendship between peoples, countries, cultures and individuals can inspire peace efforts and build bridges between communities.”

(Quote from www.un.org/en/observances/friendship-day )

Today we also discovered, running alongside the International Day of Friendship is the event #PostcardsOfKindness so now there is a new purpose to my life. This event was set up to bring a smile upon the faces of home care residents. This works by sending mainly postcards to individuals or as a group check out their website. Happy Reading
