What our readers say.........

Six year old Jamie from London read some of the book out to his class. He told his gran how much he enjoyed it and said: "It's like real life granny!" 


"I enjoyed it more than Harry Potter!" said 7 year old Algie from London.


"A most interesting read with great momentum. After every chapter I couldn't wait to start the next." 


A. Hopking - Herbalist

Herbactive, New Milton


" I enjoyed the book very much and bought five copies to give as presents to the family - including my grandchildren and my ninety-three year old aunt. They were amazed at how dogs helped during the War."


D.A. Wills



"I wanted to say how much I enjoyed reading your book  ‘Buddy the War Dog’.  Once I started reading it I couldn’t put it down. I think that  today’s children, who didn’t grow up in the years after the war, will be fascinated to learn how dogs were used to save lives in those times. I think your book captures the atmosphere of those days very vividly.

Thank you for a ‘good read’."


E. James - Highcliffe, Dorset


"I have read your book and really enjoyed it. I couldn't wait to turn the pages to find out if those 4 brave dogs who parachuted into France got home safely. its wonderful that you have brought to attention how brave and loyal those dogs were. I think every school library should have Buddy the War Dog on their shelves!"


W. Jones - Bournemouth, Dorset


"I found it very exciting and read it straight through. I had no idea dogs were actually parachuted behind enemy lines!"


H. Johns - Broadcaster Radio Hospital Bedside - Bournemouth, Dorset



"It was a very interesting read, full of information as well as being funny in parts and also moving. Written through the eyes of a dog was an imaginative way of portraying what it was like for dogs who helped during World War II." 


S. Powell - Charente, France


"The pace was exciting. It was also very moving in parts. I think it would make a great animated film." 


L.W.  - Wimborne Minster, Dorset


"I loved it and passed it to my nine year old grandson to read. He thought it was great too."


S. G - Wimborne Minster, Dorset


"A great book. I enjoyed it very much indeed."


S. Chissell - Wimborne Minster, Dorset


"A compelling read and a great book for younger readers to learn more about World War II. For those who were born during and just after the war it will bring back memories."


M. Tidd - Wimborne Minster, Dorset
