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, ...more

Recommends it for: Dachshund lovers
I LOVED this book! Granted, I am a self-professed crazy doxie lady, and this book is about a boy and his mom who visit another crazy doxie lady and her dachshund, Hamish. The illustrations are really cute, and I loved finding all the doxie-details in the crazy doxie lady's house, like dachshund clothes, dachshund toys, dachshund furnishings, etc. Overall, just a really cute book, especially recommended for dachshund lovers and families of dachshunds. My kids (preschool and kindergarten-age) both ...more

I am not a dog person AT ALL. But if I were I'd probably really like this book about a young child getting to know a dog for the first time. Timid to begin with, but they soon become friends. Fun details in the illustrations (how many dog themed items can you spot?). I still think all dogs apart from helper dogs should be banned (I know, extreme, but that explains why this is a 3 stars not more). I can see this will be a great book for the right people.

Cute story about a toddler who visits a neighbors home and is initially scared by the neighbor's dog. The dog is moved to a bedroom with the door closed to avoid frightening the little boy. The boy and dog become best friends after the dog licks the boy's finger while trying to grab a piece of a cookie he dropped that rolled under the door where the dog was put.

Other than a missing word "to" on the very first line of the book, this is adorable. Heartwarming and engaging illustrations. Often a young child is traumatized by a barking dog, regardless of size. As the book progresses, a friendship is formed. Love a book when adults act like adults rather than belittle a child when there is fear?

I did not like that the first sentence of the book was missing a word. That's not the way to make a first good impression. In fact, I became distracted as I continued to read because I was then looking for additional errors.

Delightful. I especially love the page where Seb and Hamish are peeking at each other under the closed door.
