Toby’s Tale is completely engaging. It manages to be warm, funny, surprising, and occasionally philosophical while keeping you entertained with adventures, mishaps, and triumphs. I would love to see this made into a movie.

A wonderful story about an ambitious young pup who makes the difficult decision to head out on his own adventure. Told through the eyes of Toby, this unique perspective adds a special touch of humor and excitement to Toby’s adventures that keeps you turning pages. A great read for young and old and a definite must-have for animal lovers.

My niece and nephews were as spellbound as I was by this remarkable page-turner ... It's one of those productions that is just as good on one level for adults as for kids. The beauty for kids is that it lasts, going beyond illustrated children's book to novel-let.
