Soldier Dog (www.soldierdog.net)
A Horse called Hero
House on Hummingbird Island
You may remember me from your fascinating talk at Trinity school on Thursday November 6th when St Bartholomew's School came and you signed all three of your books for me to read. I just recently finished Soldier Dog and what a fantastic read! I laughed, cried and fell in love with the characters (especially Bones and Soldier) and read it start to finish, cover to cover and I couldn’t put it down. I really liked Stanley with his courage to go to war at just fourteen and to go the the frontline’s with just one dog. The only bit I didn’t like was when Bones died as I had grown such an emotional attachment to him and I must have cried for at least an hour and even just thinking about it made me sad.
I am about to start Hero now and I look forward to it enormously.
Thank you again of your amazing talk.
I just wanted to thank you so much for coming in today – we all so enjoyed your talk and the wonderful photos too! Absolutely fascinating stuff – I am sure your book will do amazingly well. We sold a lot of books, and already have a list of boys wanting to buy the book tomorrow,
I was so impressed with your level of knowledge about the message dogs in WW1 that it was like a proper history lesson! I am looking forward to finishing the story with my reading group, even more now that I have some extra knowledge and information on the background of Soldier Dog. Thank you for your visit and for writing such a wonderful story, I wish you all the best for your next book that I am sure will end up being read by future pupils at Rutlish School.
