This book is a gorgeous book - beautiful pictures which look hand drawn, any of which would look at home on the walls of a farmhouse. I would have this book as a special book to share with the chidlren at quiet or bed time.
The story is about a trusty farm dog written as if the dog is telling the story. It introduces the reader to farm life, the herding and shearing of sheep. It also, i think, gives a message about remembering to include old friends, when new friends appear.
i really enjoyed reading this book and i think Michael Morpurgo, along with Patrick Benson, have written a lovely story which will be loved by children of all ages.

Wonderful story accompanied by beautiful water colour illustrations. I bought this book to read to my daughter who is fanatical about dogs and is currently particularly interested in sheep dogs. I have yet to read a Morpurgo book that i have not thoroughly enjoyed. As a teacher I work with many of his books, use them as reading books and recommend them to both children and adults.
It's a Dog's Life tells the story of a day in the life of Russ the sheep dog. We meet his family & friends and learn of the work that he does around the farm. An interesting 'way in' to farm life & the relationships between people & animals.

This is a charming book with beautiful illustrations. Russ is a working farm dog, but also best friend of Lula, a little girl of about six years.It is as near to having your own dog without the mess. A wonderful book to share with younger folk.
But beware - requests for a real Russ will come thick and fast.

Have been borrowing this from the library for 6 years and it is still the favourite picture book of my 5 and 9 year olds. Make sure to get the Patrick Benson illustrations. I haven't seen the others, but they really make the book.

My just turned 2 year old loves this book, she reads parts of it and repeats it. Would love to get more books like this for her as the illustrations are so true to life. Beautiful.
