Shortlisted for the Nasen TES Book Award. This is a wonderful tale of love, friendship and independence between a little boy, Dan and his dog Diesel. Emotions are tested to their limit when Diesel is dogknapped but it all ends happily in the end.


Dan And Diesel by Charlotte Hudson

Dan's dog, Diesel, is a wonder dog. He can do anything. He can ride on trains and planes and in underground tunnels. When Dan is with Diesel, he can go anywhere. He can go shopping at the market. He can climb mountains and draw pictures in his head. Together, they can conquer the world. But one day, Diesel is whisked away in a big black van.


Remarkable -- Lucinda Jacob Inis Very fast-paced and a good story; young children will love it -- Andy Howells South Wales Argus Appealing -- Frances Perkins Bournemouth Daily Echo

It has introduced my children to books we hadn’t come across before. Real children’s reviews gives a great insight into what others think to
