A unique and exciting friendship has been established by a small dog and a large cat in “Hobbes and Sam.” This delightful book by author Rick Taylor follows a very small dog and a very large cat that met by accident and became close friends because of the dog's fearlessness and her willingness to accept the cat as a friend. Eventually, they will care for each other while working as a team to protect each other and the human family with whom they live. Their adventures will expose them to the dangers of the forest, where they help a turtle and chase away a coyote which was about to attack a rabbit. Later, when Sam and her family go camping, Sam becomes a hero by rescuing a small boy who got lost in the woods. At home, Sam and Hobbes carry out a plan to stop a neighborhood burglar who breaks into their house.
Young children can relate to stories about animals. Parents will appreciate the lessons in the importance of friendship, compassion and courage the stories deliver. “Hobbes and Sam” delivers a deeper understanding of what it means to be a friend and to care for others, on a level which young children can understand, while also capturing their interest. Taylor would like children to be entertained by the stories and become interested in reading but also to appreciate the value of helping others.
“Hobbes and Sam” entertains young children and teaches them the importance of friendship, loyalty and courage. It can be read by children, or read by the parents of children too young to read.
