Tilly's Tale

Tilly's Tale has been out for awhile, but I just now got around to reading it. Believe me, I have a huge stack of books that I want to read. Anyway, today is such a nice day and Neil wanted to ride his bike in the driveway, so I decided to do a little reading. Tilly's Tale is a story of a little rescued dog. The book is written in Tilly's own words. Here's the blurb from the cover ...

Rescued when life looked bleak and her future uncertain, Tilly found love and a new purpose in her life. Read Tilly's story in her own "words", share the highs and the lows of her struggle to be loved and wanted, and be prepared to fall in love with this very special terrier.

Tilly's Tale is written by Harry Porter, illustrated by Mandy Hedrick, and published by 4RV Publishing, LLC. It would be a perfect book for children just getting into chapter books. However, any animal lover will enjoy this book, no matter their age. Tilly's Tale is the first book in a series called Harry Porter's Dogs Tales, featuring his dogs who were all rescued from bad situations. Click here to order a copy of it from 4RV Publishing, LLC. This book would make a great gift for anyone who loves animals.


  1. Had to do a second take on Harry Porter...(Potter) Sounds like a delightful book.

  2. LOL Paul -- Yes, Harry Porter is apparently a pseudonym for him, as he's also a well known author of adult thrillers.

  3. Looks like a sweet book. I also had to do a double take for the Harry Potter I thought I read!

  4. Brian decided to used his grandfather's name for his children's books: Harry Porter.

    The next in the series will be out in a few months.

  5. Hello Rena,

    Thanks so much for blogging about my book. I'm so pleased you enjoyed reading the story of my life so far. Dylan is very much looking forward to seeing his book come out this year too, and the others can't wait to see their books appear too. Here at Harry's House we now have a total of 14 rescued dogs, with Mimi and Bobby having joined us in recent weeks. I'd love to invite everyone along to my 'dog blog' at where you can see pictures of all the dogs here, and read about our lives together.

    I hope lots of people continue to read and enjoy Tilly's Tale and perhaps learn a little of what it's like to be a rescued dog.

    Thanks again

    Lots of love


  6. It sounds like a lovely story. I love the cover.
    I often wonder the stories behind all my stray kittens.

  7. Sounds like a great book. I think it's so important for kids to understand about rescued animals and how finding a loving place for them is crucial.

    Thanks for sharing!
