Just Like Floss by Kim Lewis
Book DescriptionAcclaimed author-illustrator Kim Lewis has created another warm and evocative story that depicts the world of rural children and animals in affectionate detail. Floss has just had puppies, and the children want to know if they can keep one. "Maybe," their father says. "We could use another collie just like Floss to work with the sheep on the farm." But which one? Day after day the children watch the puppies grow, until one day Sam, the littlest, strays into the field. The sheep crowd around him, but instead of flinching, the puppy crouches low and runs, scattering the flock. "Big brave Sam," exclaim the children, racing after him, "just like Floss."

Friends, Paperback (February 1999)» View all books by Kim Lewis
Sam and Alice are the best of friends. One day, while playing on the farm they find an egg and decide to take it back to the farmhouse. The egg breaks and the children fall out. Then they find another and this time they take the egg all the way home to Sam's mum, friends once more.
US Kirkus Review » 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 keep - which one will be "just like Floss" - until 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. (Kirkus Reviews)
