One little dog gets very lost in this debut picture book from the hugely popular author, Holly Webb (My Naughty Little Puppy, Magic Molly). Harry the puppy is out on his first walk with his owner, Evie, when a bright red ball whizzes past his nose. Off Harry races after it, but when he catches the ball he realises he's lost his lead - and Evie! Will he find his way home? The perfect picture book for all little animal lovers - and those pestering their parents for a pet! With beautiful illustrations from Rebecca Harry, this story is a wonderful way of introducing very young readers to the special world of Holly Webb.

The Review: Little Puppy Lost is a short story about a little puppy called Harry being taken for his very first walk by his owner Evie. But while walking, a red ball captures Harry’s attention and he runs off and can’t find his way back to Evie. On his journey to trying to get home he meets a friendly ginger cat called Ginger who tries to help Harry but will they ever find Harry’s home?

What a delightful story! Little Puppy Lost is a perfect bedtime that keeps your thoroughly entertained. My daughter and I have read this twice now because we enjoyed it so much and we fell in love with the plot of the story. Harry and Ginger make a great duo and really teaches your little ones that you can make friends anywhere. My daughter especially loved that Ginger the cat reminded her of a ginger cat that visits her Nannie’s house and she really enjoyed the illustrations by Rebecca Harry too, which she kept pointing out. But what we enjoyed the most was Harry and Ginger’s adventure in finding home and the heart-warming ending that the story finished with. 

Thank you to Little Tiger Press for giving me the opportunity to review this book in exchange for an honest review.
