Stanley by Colin Thompson

 It was very quiet in Stanley's house. there were no brothers or sisters, no dads or grannies, not even a cat, a budgie or a goldfish.'


"There is more to life than biscuits and rubber balls, but not much"   Colin Thompson


I do love this story.  I didn't the first time but the second and every time since the kids and I have loved it.  A beautiful love story.

Another dog steals Stanley's favourite red ball one afternoon at the park and the next day there is a knock at the door.  From that moment life changes forever for Stanley, Gerald and Gerald's Mum. 

A book on love.  Love for a dog, a ball, a boy, biscuits, shoes and how they make a family. Not so much love for Poodles, Cats or Animal costumes.

Another great book Mr Thompson.
