Finding a Friend


When Little Pup finds himself at the shelter, he doesn’t know quite what to do. Big dogs all around, feeling lost and alone, Little Pup needs a friend… but who? As an experienced primary school teacher and mother of four, Carol Thomas knows the importance of inspiring a love of books from an early age. In Finding a Friend Carol brings her knowledge of developing early literacy skills together with an understanding of creating characters young children will connect with. The language of the text is purposely rhythmic, rhyming and repetitive - inspiring children to join in, anticipate and repeat words and phrases. The effortlessly emotive illustrations ensure that young children will be able to interpret and discuss the puppy's range of thoughts and feelings. From the engaging language to the charming illustrations, Finding a Friend is a book created to encourage young children, aged 0 - 5 years, to actively participate in the reading experience.

Carol Thomas has recently gained a publishing contract with Ruby Fiction, a new imprint of award-winning romance publishers Choc Lit. Her Ruby Fiction debut, The Purrfect Pet Sitter, is a romantic comedy due for release April 2018.
