From the moment I first clapped eyes on this stunning cover I couldn't wait to read this book. I am familiar with the author’s writing but Lesley has turned her hand at writing a children's book. Firstly I have to say that one of the things that makes this book so special is the beautiful illustrations throughout the story. They are stunning.
In this story we meet Nicolas James Corrigan who lives with his aunt. Nicholas doesn't speak and while out with his aunt he meets a strange dog and discovers they can understand each other's thoughts. Nicholas James was a key witness to a crime when he was little and now The Man Who Did the Very Bad Thing is back and looking for him. But can his faithful new friend protect him?
The idea of this story is simply wonderful with Nicolas James and the Strange dog’s friendship grows from the second they meet. The author has done a brilliant job of portraying this throughout the story building a brilliant bond between them.
And to be totally honest this is what I needed after just getting my reading mojo back. It is an easy and captivating read where you can't help but love the characters...oh apart from the very bad man. He’s the baddie in the story so he isn't meant to be loved.
Even though this is a children's novel it can be read my people of all ages and it is one of those stories that adults will love. I certainly did. And I hope there is more to come from Nicolas I have my fingers crossed that this is going to be a series.
I highly recommend this book giving it 5 stars and would like to thank Lesley for a copy in exchange for an honest review.
Available in both kindle and paperback!
