Dear Clementina by Colin Burke is uniquely written from the point of view of a border terrier, Stanley, writing to another dog, Clementina.
We follow Stanley for the first year of his life, from the time he is a pup, meeting his new owners, learning the rules of his new house, to being left with strangers while his owners go on holidays.
The story follows him as he grows older and meets other dogs, and has fantastic experiences.
He writes to Clementina often, telling her of the wonderful places he goes on holidays and the things he learns from other dogs. He tells her of his trips to the vets and about his lively owners.
Through Stanley we hear about the adventures of other dogs that he meets as they tell him stories about their lives.
The book ends around Stanley's first birthday and I enjoyed reading about the fuss they made of him.
I loved this quirky, fun little book, it made me smile and giggle all the way through. I recommend Dear Clementina to all who love a fun, light read and to all of the dog lovers out there.
