Haatchi and Little B by Wendy Holden

The Lovereading4Kids comment

An abandoned dog hit by a train after being tied to a railway line to die and the child, severely disabled by a rare genetic condition. After the Howkins family saw Haatchi’s plight on a Facebook appeal, their son Owen was captivated and the dog was theirs just weeks after Haatchi’s accident. Owen found confidence and companionship and Haatchi became his devoted follower, changing Owen’s life in ways that the family could only dare hope for.


Haatchi and Little B by Wendy Holden

When Haatchi was injured by a train, he lost one of his legs and his tail - a huge problem for such a big dog. He needed some serious love; he needed to find his perfect Forever Home. And then Haatchi met Owen. Owen was finding life hard too. He also needed some love. And, like Haatchi, he had a lot of love to give...

This is the inspiring true story of the best friends who can overcome any problem together. Because, after all, it doesn't matter how many legs or wheels you have, it's who journeys with you.

I am so pleased to have signed my kids up as they are reading a much wider range of books and even choosing books out of their comfort zone.
