Summary: Seb and Mama go to visit Mrs Kenny, but there's a dog called Hamish at the house too. Woof woof, says Hamish. "Home," says Seb in a little voice. While Mama and Mrs Kenny have tea, Hamish is shut in another room and Seb plays with his train set . He gets so absorbed he forgets all about Hamish - until a piece of his cookie slips under the door. Seb puts his finger through the gap, peeps under the door, and two gentle eyes look back at him. "Hello, Hamish," says Seb. When it's time to go home, Mama looks everywhere for Seb. Where could he be? Seb and Hamish are found at last, curled up together, fast asleep!
Review: This is a wonderful book for young children who might be afraid of pets, specifically dogs. This story is about a boy who pays a visit with his mom to a friend’s house only to be a bit frightened of an animated, loud dachshund. Seb learns how to not be afraid of the dog and by the end they are inseparable. Cute, adorable, sweet picture book that can teach any young reader to not be afraid of animals.
