My daughter dearly loved the stories from the first Poppy book and I was going to wait for Christmas but caved in and bought this straight away. Educational, hugely enjoyable and as wonderfully written as the first book. A winner all round. Sophia Fergus creates some really warm and memorable characters which spring effortlessly to life. Hopefully, there will be further installments in the near future. These stories would also make excellent material for a childrens television series and that too would surely help to spread the word about the truly great work that The Dogs Trust do.
