A lovely story about a wonderful place where all kinds of animals find hope, kindness and happiness. This wonderful children’s books is about a three legged retriever called Tricycle who is adopted by a family, and goes to live at their farm. Once there, he meets Buckaroo, the miniature donkey. The two quickly become friends, and Buckaroo introduces Tricycle to some of the other animals. Many are adopted too. He soon discovers that there are all sorts, not only other dogs, but horses, llamas, chickens, and honey bees. Every one has their own story to tell, and no one cares that Tricyce has only three legs, in fact they are interested to know how he lost it, and if it bothers him. He in return discovers that all his new friends have their own stories to tell, and that the farm is a magical place where they can all live together in harmony. Through the talented storytelling of Lester Aradi, and the wonderful illustrations of Darwin Marfil, children learn in a very gentle way, through the experiences of Tricycle and his friends, how being different is okay, and as the book progresses they learn about bullying, the importance of adopting animals, and many other things. That this beautiful Golden Retriever and the farm, with its animals actually exist is the icing on the cake - one day perhaps I will be lucky enough to visit!
