When I was growing up, our next door neighbour had a Dachshund, and they’ve always rather amused me. In Fred n Friends – A Seaside Adventure we meet a little sausage dog called Fred who is based on a real life pet. This paperback book is one of a series of adventures aimed at children aged between 3-8 years of age, and Monkey has loved reading this at bedtime.
Fred n Friends – A Seaside Adventure is written by mother and daughter, Angela and Stephanie O’Donnell and in this particular story, Fred is off to the seaside.
The story is told in rhyming text and is full of humour as we join Fred on the beach, where he meets Mr Crab, who is slightly under dressed for the occasion. A big fish has stolen his shell and so begins the adventure as Fred tries to track down the shell and find out why it was taken in the first place.
It really is rather a charming tale and Monkey loved getting to know Fred and the friends he meets at the seaside. It’s kept him well entertained, and is perfect for the intended age group in my opinion. Priced at £4.99, I’ve included my Amazon Affiliate link below for this, and the 2 other books currently available, a fourth book is in the pipeline I’m told.
