Floss is a Border collie who is more interested in playing football than rounding up sheep. A delightful story, says Wes Magee

Floss book cover

Floss by Kim Lewis explores themes of duty and belonging

I love the picture book Floss by Kim Lewis (Walker Books, ISBN 9780744520712). It is not only a delightful story but is also accompanied by charming and wonderfully evocative full-colour illustrations. The book is popular with Key Stage 1 children because of the enduring appeal of the central character – Floss, a Border collie – and how her life intertwines with adults and children in both town and country. The story has realistic settings – a town and the moor land – and manages to communicate deep feelings of belonging and a sense of duty.
