A new story for that best of all dogs, McTavish, and another delicious helping of wry, insightful observation on human and family life. McTavish’s efforts to help the Peachey family become happier and more organised still has a way to go, but he’s an intelligent dog and up to the job. When the family embark on a camping holiday in a remote but beautiful bit of Scotland, McTavish needs all his cleverness and patience to show them how to relax and properly enjoy themselves. McTavish is an irresistible character, his gentle guiding of the Peacheys is very funny indeed, and this beautifully story will leave all readers smiling. ~ Andrea Reece

It's summer and the Peachey family is in crisis - again. Youngest child Betty Peachey is trying to persuade the family to go to the Faraway Campsite of Ma Peachey's idyllic dreams. But most of the Peacheys are still resisting. Pa Peachey is convinced that terrible dangers lurk in the `wild', Ollie only cares about whether there's a `disco', and Ava has her nose deep in philosophy books...But marvellous McTavish, always one step ahead of the Peacheys, quietly works out a way to get the family enjoying their holiday, together.
