Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Marilyn Courtot
Floss, a handsome border collie has just given birth to five little puppies. The kids want to keep them and Dad says that they could use another dog to help Floss. But which one of the pups will stay. When Sam follows his mother who has gone back to her herding duties, he comes face to face with the sheep. He doesn't back down and the sheep scatter, so the kids know that Sam is the one-he is just like Floss. The story is set during a snowy winter and the scenes are filled with shaggy white sheep, snow covered fields and the beautiful black and white dogs. A story for all, but especially for kids who love dogs.
Kirkus Reviews
The natural instincts of a border collie pup are at work in this gratifying sequel (Floss, 1992) that plays to the heart. In page after page, Lewis creates a strikingly realistic panoply of pups a-tumble. The children on the farm warm to all five of border collie Floss's newborns, and can't decide which one to keepnwhich one will be "just like Floss"nuntil the pup they call Sam strays too close to the flock. In a single, defiant moment, Sam stands up to an old ewe; the children cheer and the herd scatters as a new working sheep dog is born. Setting her story against a wintry backdrop, Lewis captures the spirit of puppies and their young caretakers at play. (Picture book. 3-6)
