Luna’s Woodland Adventure
“It’s a lovely day for a walk in the woods and rescue dog, Luna, has so much fun that she gets lost. Join her on her adventure home as she makes new friends and discovers how brave she can be.”
That’s the blurb on the back of the book because the human wanted to sound like a proper writer. Basically, I was taken out on walkies to my favourite wood. I was having an amazing time, making sure I raced around doing zoomies and then I spotted a butterfly. I chased her. Then, I couldn’t find my human. Oops!
So, this is the story of my journey home, making new friends along the way and learning that if I ask for help and believe in myself, I’m braver than I think I am.
If you love books with positive messages and learning all built into a brilliant story, then you’ll love this book. If you don’t care about that and just want to be entertained while you get lost in a world of amazing illustrations, this is for you too. My friends and I are gorgeous, absolutely gorgeous!

This quote from Albert Einstein has been a source of inspiration to me. ‘Everybody is a genius. But if you judge a fish by its ability to climb a tree, it will live its whole life believing that it is stupid.’ The reality is that we all have inherent value, inherent worth and the means to make a positive difference in the world, by being exactly who we are. To be able to encourage this belief with children in a way that entertains, teaches and serves as a message that will stay with them long after they close the final page is an exciting prospect. Courage, acceptance and the desire to always do our best are life lessons that we can all appreciate. (Marie Yates)
