The book describes the adventures of a dog called Shanti, who goes walkabout around Sennen, near Lands End in Cornwall (UK). The real magic of this book is apparent if you take your children to Sennen and let them discover Shanti's trail. My children (aged 7 and 11) were absolutely captivated.
The illustrations by Jo Holland are superb and we had great fun finding the exact spots and views where Jo had produced her glorious work. The detail of the story and art work is wonderful and we all enjoyed reading the story as we progressed around the trail. Shanti the dog has his own website; so you can combine a great story, some internet time and a walk in the great outdoors.
If you enjoy Cornwall, you will love this book.
