Full Text: I am only half way through this book. However, I had to stop and post a review. So far, Dear Clementina is a such a wonderful and lovely book. Colin Burke does an amazing job of writing from a dog's perspective. As an owner of a scruffy chaotic terrier, I find myself laughing out loud to this book. There are times I wonder what my dog is thinking, well now I have my answers. I am sure this book will only get better, and I can't wait to keep reading it.

Well Mr Burke I am very impressed indeed with your totally original first novel, I do not even like dogs but I read this series of letters at one fell swoop. Lovely illustrations. More please.

A puppy's first year of life told by the mischievous puppy himself is chronicled in the clever format of a letter to one of his closest canine pals. This "first-puppy perspective" makes for a whimsical view on the new and often misinterpreted ways of the world and how we humans live our lives. I found myself chuckling quite often at Stanley's behavior, observations, and approach to everyday situations and felt compelled to share some of his more humorous antics with my husband. I would highly recommend this book to any reader, but especially to other dog lovers. It is a fun and touching book that everyone will enjoy!

Dear Clementina is an adorable book about a young pup named Stanley. He makes a new friend, at the park, Clementina, and when they can't meet up, he writes letters to her about what's been going on in his life. Colin Burke obviously loves dogs and brings a unique insight to the way dogs think. If you are a dog or animal lover this is definitely the book for you! Pick it up, it's a quick read and quite lovely.

Dear Clementina was a lighthearted and creative way to tell the tale of Stanley Burke, a Border Terrier puppy living in Manchester, England. The letters he sends Clementina, a fellow Border Terrier pup, detail his various (mis)adventures and he does come off as quite a cheeky dog! One can't help but smile when they read Stanley's letters as he regales Clementina (and the rest of us) with his tales. His story told through letters is creative and endears him more to readers. Four stars!
