"A beautiful tale about love and friendship and a puppy searching for happiness - as told by the puppy himself."
Hector: A Dog's Story is a beautiful tale about love and friendship and a puppy searching for happiness - as told by the puppy himself. An emotional rollercoaster that takes the reader through highs and lows, happiness and sadness, loss and new life. A brilliant book, perfectly illustrated, to help children understand that death is not the end and that, as the author says, 'hope never dies' and 'for everyone there is happiness waiting'.
