LoveReading View on My Dog Daisy

Interest Age 8-12 Reading Age 8+  This new story from Jean Ure, though seemingly simple and straightforward, is typically full of insight into children’s friendships and lives. Like lots of children, Lily longs for a dog but now that she and her mum are living in a fifth floor flat it’s just not possible. Lily can’t accept this, blames her mum (they used to live with her gran until her mum had a falling out with her) and generally behaves in a very stroppy way. A meeting with an old lady and her dog in the park changes things, and Lily’s new friendship helps her cope with her anger, and gives her space to calm down. ~ Andrea Reece

Lily is absolutely desperate for her very own dog. She's wanted one for as long as she can remember and no other pet will do. But Mum says they can't keep one in their new flat - disaster! So when Lily meets a fellow dog-lover in the park one day she hatches a plan to be a co-owner. Will her new friend Charlotte and Fred the dog be the answer to all her prayers?
