Our Rating

Rating: 5 out of 5.

This book is an absolute joy to read. It speaks of heartbreak, unlikely friendships and healing. Haley is based on real life dog, another family member. Throughout the story it tells of all the mischief Haley gets herself into. If you’ve ever had a new puppy you know exactly what they are capable of. They are also capable of unconditional love, and before long they are melting your heart. Wonderful illustrations by Marty Petersen pull it all together beautifully. The plush Haley, with adorable bandana, makes your child feel as if they are in the story, forging a deeper connection to the book. We love it and hopefully we’ll see more books from this team in the near future!
