Book Review – Rhodry’s Holiday by Deerhound Rhodry and Sophie Wallace

First published, 2017

⭐ ⭐ ⭐ ⭐ ⭐

What an utterly adorable little book. An absolute must for people with children – and for people without children. I’m in Auntie territory myself. As someone with a large number of friends who have little ones, I know what they’ll be getting for Christmas. This is such a great little read about a wonderful, characterful dog.

The story follows Rhodry the Scottish Deerhound, and his family, on a holiday to the Isle of Bute. The writing is fun and easy to follow. The illustrations are just gorgeous. I especially enjoyed Rhodry’s expression when he got home and had a rest on the sofa.

I consider myself a hardened cynic but I found myself smiling throughout the book. If you know a little person who likes dogs and stories, this is the book for you.
