The pigs, cows, horses, and farmer all have happy homes but the snakes are in the roadway and twisting in usual shapes. They are trying to tell Rufus something but poor old Rufus can't read.

    This is a beautifully illustrated and written book for children. Rufus the farmers dog reads what the snakes are trying to tell him, by shaping their bodies into letter shapes about looking after their home. I think this book would be excellent for primary school children as it is encouraging them to read as they want to find out what the snakes are saying. Also at the back of the book is a section on snakes and facts about them. This could be used in non - fiction lessons about snakes. There is [...]

    When Rufus the dog notices several snakes curled in strange fashion, spelling out a message he can't read, he goes for help. His farmer is buys filling in an old well, and when he finally sees the snakes, he realizes the problem. The snakes have been using the well to survive the cold weather. I really liked how the farmer doesn't continue with his original plans; instead, he puts a fence around the area so the snakes are safe, but other animals and humans won't be harmed. It was encouraging to [...]
