The heart-warming story of an Irish rescue dog who finds a new home in England – where no one understands what she’s barking about! Sky, a well-meaning Burmese puss, teaches her to speak English – but all the local animals laugh at her for speaking ‘cat’!
She has some fun and crazy adventures, but keeps on wagging that long floppy tail and is soon known and loved as Freya Waggytail…

    The Mad Adventures Of Freya Waggytail by Helly Eaton is the most delightful children’s book about the adventures of a rescue dog. It will make you smile.
    The book is just perfect to read to young children or for more confident readers to read themselves.
    This book will warm your heart whilst simultaneously bringing a tear to your eye as your read about Freya’s abandonment. “They took her to a place full of other dogs, all with sad stories.”
    We see that dogs are friendly whereas cats like to be in charge. As a crazy cat lady who grew up with Burmese, this sentence really resonated with me. “She didn’t know then that Burmese cats thought they owned the world and everything in it.” Burmese cats are perfectly captured in a sentence!
    We meet all kinds of animals with differing personalities. All have been beautifully illustrated by Jenny Beck. The pictures have so much detail and are perfect to look at in-depth with our children.
    The book is a wonderful collection of Freya’s adventures but there is also a serious message – rescue dogs need loving homes.
    I thoroughly enjoyed accompanying Freya Waggytail throughout the book. I cannot wait to hear more of her adventures.
    I received a free copy from the publishers. A favourable review was not required. All opinions are my own.
