 This delightful children’s book by James Beverly is the perfect “tail” to read. It has been awarded and is said to enlighten readers about the values our pets bring into life.
It is heart-warming, educational and thoroughly enjoyable.
 The book starts us off with a brief introduction telling us that Seamus is not just a fictional dog but a real life one too. His name hails from Scotland and means...well you’ll have to read that bit for yourself.
We are told that Seamus has his own language which the author decided to include to make this book more fun to read.  There is also a discussion guide for parents which aims to help answer some of those questions you may have after reading this.
I began chapter one and was taken on an adventure of intrigue and humour. Seamus has spent most of the morning organizing his toys into separate piles according to shape.   He is certainly a dog who likes order. 
After finishing tidying his toys the bright sunshine beckons Seamus outside to play with his friends. However when he sees his friends are not there to play, Seamus decides to check out the pond instead. There he meets Maggie, an Irish Setter. She is gentle and kind and always happy to spent time talking in Seamus language.
 Where will Seamus’s adventure next take him? A sneaky cat, a mysterious stranger, a spooky tree and a little story teller all feature in Seamus’s travels.  Their paths cross and more lessons are to be learnt.
What exactly is a Seamus Christmas and what is this little dog’s idea of the perfect day?
Throughout these stories there are beautiful pictures that help to “bring alive” the characters and the environment.  They make you wish you could draw them. Lovely.
Altogether an imaginative and amazing book featuring a dog all children will adore. He shows us that through life’s problems and difficulties we can overcome anything and come out the other side all the better for it.
Addictive reading.
Seamus the Sheltie
