Then one day a little Sheltie puppy
arrived at the Old Mill Cottage
to be a new friend for Pippin
because he was so lonely.
She was only two months old, and very beautiful
with her bright silver and grey coat,
and snow-white collar.
She was called Seren,
which is the Welsh word for Star.
A most remarkable book which will delight children and adults alike.
The stories of two Shelties - Pippin and the puppy Seren - are set in the Welsh countryside.
Enjoy their adventures in the woods and garden, excursions to the beach and Dog Shows, and conversations about Life at the Old Mill Cottage. Pippin shares his wisdom with the curious young Seren, teaching her 'people talk', and ‘dog talk’, sharing life in the garden with the birds, the fox, the rabbits, and ‘making friends’.
Charming and insightful text by Fred Clough is supported by beautiful illustrations by Jen Delyth
which also reflect that Celtic tradition.
"Life at Old Mill Cottage is truly idylic, filled with such fun and a love of life in general.
There is pathos where Pippin the wise old sage, reflects about his mother and
endeavours to impart his wisdom to the young Seren.
A book of joy which is so refreshing in todays troubled world.
This lovely tale cannot end here. I look forward to the sequel" - Fran Sinfield
