Synopsis

Harvey, the smallest pup, is left all alone with grumpy Farmer Greaves. 

Discovering he’s going to be sent away to a cruel owner he plans his escape… before it’s far too late… 

But he hasn’t seen the last of Farmer Greaves just yet!

Author's Biography

Inspired by his love of reading, writing a book is something that had been on Justin's 'life list' for many years! 
Wanting very much to pass this love of books onto his children, Davis completed a writing course; after many screwed up pieces of A4 his first novel was complete!

Reviews

As a father, I have read plenty of children's books, from Big House publishers to independently published short stories, this book seemed to protrude through all of them. I found myself empathysing for Harvey (the dog) and Millie Baker (his adopter) from an early stage. This book beautifully purveys how harsh circumstances and cruelty can be overcome by a kind and caring heart. This is a great book for parents who are looking to have their children become independent readers.
