As a big fan of the Dogs of Pilothead Sound books by C.S. Walkingheart, I jumped at the chance to read the story of Twitch, one of the dogs featured in the main books.
Twitch & the Singing Field Heirloom is a wonderful short story about one of the adventures that Twitch, a Norwich Terrier, and his friends get up to. It is a book which is the perfect length for children, but also great for an quick adult read. Another great factor is that you do not need to have read DOPS or DOPS II first, it is perfectly good as a standalone book.
However if you have read the first 2 books reading Twitch & the Singing Field Heirloom is highly recommended as it does reveal a few things and solves a great mystery!
The writing is of the high standard and illustrative depths which one becomes accustomed too after reading a number of works by this author. I just wish there had been more of the illustrations which make reading DOPS and DOPS II such a joy.
All in all this is a fabulous read, great for the whole family, and perfect if you fancy a quick and happy read.
