An adventure story, both touching and exciting, set in the 1960s.


Children’s Reviews

James, age 10:

Jack’s new puppy sounds very cute. Magic reminds me of my dog Snuggles. I liked the story because I enjoy reading about adventures and going to Cornwall.

Kirsty, age 7:

The book is a little bit sad at first, because Jack’s best friend Charlie leaves and Jack doesn’t know why. It takes a long time for Jack to find Charlie (with Magic’s help) but when he does, it’s a really happy ending.

From Comment
2016-06-30 Rachel .... This is a charming book, all about the things that children can relate to - a holiday adventure, involving a pet dog and a best friend. Sad to start with, but a delightfully happy ending. Children and parents will both love it.
