Seb and Mama go to visit Mr.s Kenny, but there's a dog called Hamish at the house too. Woof woof, says Hamish. "Home," says Seb in a little voice. While Mama and Mrs. Kenny have tea, Hamish is shut in another room and Seb plays with his train set. He gets so absorbed he forgets all about Hamish - until a piece of his cookie slips under the door. Seb puts his finger through the gap, peeps under the door, and two gentle eyes look back at him. "Hello, Hamish," says Seb. When it's time to go home, Mama looks everywhere for Seb. Where could he be? Seb and Hamish are found at last, curled up together, fast asleep!

About the Author:

Jude Daly was born in London and emigrated to South Africa as a young child. She went to art college in Cape Town, and now lives there with her husband, the writer and illustrator Niki Daly, and their two sons.

Niki Daly has won many awards for his exuberant work. His groundbreaking Not So fast Songololo (1986), winner of a U.S Parent's Choice Award, paved the way for post-apartheid South African children's books. Since then, he has been published across the globe and has visited and presented talks in several countries. Among his many Frances Lincoln books, Once Upon a Time was an Honor Winner in the US Children's Africana Book Awards of 2004. Jamela's Dress - first in the Jamela series - was another milestone book, chosen by the ALA as a Notable Children's Book and by Booklist as one of the Top 10 African American Picture Books of 2000, and winning both the Children's Literature Choice Award and the Parent's Choice Silver Award. Niki lives with his wife, the illustrator Jude Daly, in Mowbray, a bustling Cape Town suburb.

From School Library Journal:

PreS-K—A young boy overcomes a common childhood fear in this charming picture book. Security blanket in hand, Seb accompanies his mother on a visit to their new neighbor. He is initially frightened by Hamish, Mrs. Kenny's barking dachshund, but once the dog is safely placed in the bedroom and the adults are settling down to tea and cookies, Seb happily starts playing with the toys left for him. Stopping for a snack by the closed bedroom door, he and the now-quiet Hamish peek at each other through the gap between the bottom of the door and the floor. He opens the door to find the dog joyfully wagging his tail, and the two become fast friends. This sweet story is enhanced by Daly's watercolor illustrations, which portray the world from a child's perspective. Seb's fearful reaction to the animal is effectively depicted through the text and illustrations. Equally believable is how he comes to befriend the dog. Readers will like looking for the numerous dachshund references in the pictures. This book will have broad appeal for dog lovers and may encourage fearful children to be brave.—Martha Simpson, Stratford Library Association, CT
