The Lovereading4Kids comment

Honey, the delightful puppy, has to make her mark on the animal gang in Buffin Street. At first they are suspicious but loveable Honey soon wins their trust in this exciting adventure led by a cast of dogs, cats, rabbits and even mice by the best-selling author of Horrid Henry.


Meet the Gang (Early Reader) by Francesca Simon

When Honey the puppy comes to live on Buffin Street, everyone is very excited. And Honey is about to discover just how much fun Buffin Street can be! Honey is the new kid on the block in this charming, funny animal story, perfect for early readers.


The illustrations are cheerful and always appropriate, making it easy for the child to identify with the story and read the text. This will be a useful book to have in the classroom, especially in schols where there is a large transient population and it would be a good book to have whenever the needs of new children are being considered.
