Mr Tilly is a very special dog. He was so grateful to find a home, that he tries very hard to always be good. He is confused in this story. His master is unhappy an he doesn't know what he did wrong. He seeks out special friends to instruct him on what to do. All he knows is it is Christmas time and his master is unhappy. This is a cute story and quite well written. It is a fun story to read to very young children or it would make an excellent easy reader for young elementary age students. The cover is OK but not exceptional. I did not care for the illustrations done by Lorna Wilson. They seemed slightly smeary, leaning toward being abstract. I felt he Title did not entirely fit the stale. Some of the story didn't "flow" well. Parts of it seemed to be added as an after-thought. It didn't always fit in chronologically. The ending was quite abrupt. Still, I feel this book earns a Four Stars review. I was generously sent this book by the author for an honest review of which I have given.
