We’re so excited that Holly Webb has joined the Barrington Stoke team with The Beach Puppy. A part of the Little Gems series for 5-8 year olds, it is full of bright illustrations, short action-packed chapters and a captivating story. It’s perfect for young readers who are ready to make a move from simple picture books to something a bit more grown-up.
Ruby and Coco become fast friends when Ruby’s dad brings Coco home from the animal shelter. This energetic little sausage dog is the perfect pet. When they go on holiday to the seaside, it’s a whole new adventure for Coco. Swimming, sandcastles, chasing a kite, and exploring every sight and sound is thrilling for the little pup. Sadly, Coco loses her way and can’t find Ruby. Will they be reunited before it’s time for the family to go home?
Anyone who has experienced a missing pet will understand the emotions of this story while those who haven’t are given the opportunity to learn what it might be like. Readers search with both Ruby and Coco as they long to find the ones they love. Themes of friendship, caring, feeling safe and unconditional love run through the pages of this lovely book.
Thank you to Barrington Stoke for another special story.
