The Lovereading4Kids comment

Holly Webb writes gentle, warm-hearted adventures that young readers absolutely love and there is lots for them to enjoy in this story. Laura’s summer is set to be a bit of a wash out - she lives in a seaside resort and her mum manages holiday cottages so they can’t go away. A group of teenagers have rented one of the houses and brought with them an adorable King Charles spaniel puppy called Henry. Unfortunately they’re all too busy having fun to look after him properly – step up quiet, caring Laura who knows just what the little puppy needs. Stories like this give girls like Laura the happy ending they deserve, and a way is found for Henry to become her dog. A happy, sunshiney treat for readers. ~ Andrea Reece

About the Author

Holly Webb

Holly was born and grew up in south-east London, but spent a lot of time on the Suffolk coast. As a child, she had two dogs, a cat, and at one point, nine gerbils (an accident). At about ten, Holly fell in love with stories from Ancient Greek myths, which led to studying Latin and Greek, and eventually to reading Classics at university. She worked for five years as a children's fiction editor, before deciding that writing was more fun, and easier to do from a sofa. She started writing several years ago while working as a children’s books editor. She has written over ninety books including the Animal Stories, My Naughty Little Puppy and Maisie Hitchins series for Stripes Publishing. Holly has also written In The Clever Little Kitten for World Book Day and a sequel to The Secret Garden. Holly Webb lives in Berkshire with her husband, children and three cats.
