Chester is feeling a little sad and lonely because his special friend Tilda did not come out to play. So Chester wanders sadly around all their favourite places hoping that she will have changed her mind and he will meet up with her.

But when Chester gets home he hears some very funny sounds and has the biggest surprise of all.

Reviews

Chester the dog is feeling lonely. His special friend, Tilda, hasn't come out to play, and Chester can't find her anywhere. Wherever can she be? Chester searches for her everywhere, in all their favourite places. He looks around the shop. He looks around the school, where the children make a big fuss of him, but he still can't find Tilda. He even manages to be brave enough to look in the dinosaur park. He asks his friend Sharky, but Sharky doesn't know where Tilda is either. It's very mysterious. Poor Chester! He goes home sadly, alone - but he's in for a lovely surprise! This simple but charming story will intrigue toddlers as they join Chester in his search for Tilda, and they will be delighted with the surprise that awaits him. This is the first book from Olivia Villet, who has also provided the bright, bold illustrations. Ages 2-4 (Kirkus UK)

I love finding new books to read. My mummy and me look at the new ones coming out. I have written reviews of some of them!

Lovereading is just a convenient way to find new books and hear others opinions on them.

Sarah Murray – age 15

It is fantastic, you get to read lots of books and you always find something new and amazing in them.

Erica Motoc, age 7

I have told all my friends, family & teachers to see for themselves just how great the site is. Without fail, they are hugely impressed.

Alexander Boxall – age 11

I love ‘LoveReading 4 kids’ because they let you read and learn things you’d never dreamed of learning before.

Emily Horncastle – age 11

You give me age appropriate ideas of books I can read and buy for the children and find out what other children their age think of them too.

Katie Lonsdale

It gives me a chance to read types of books that I would not normally try, and it motivates me to read every night to finish it!

Alice Horncastle, age 14

This company is amazing; not only is it is a great opportunity to get books and review them but everyone is so friendly and supportive!
