  1. Agnieszka, mum

    An interesting, touching, positive story for both young and large readers. I highly recommend it also as a gift because it comes beautifully wrapped with stickers of heroes. Thank you Renata for putting so much heart into this book! Brilliant!

  2. Piotr Klepacz

    Hector, A Dog’s Story by Renata Kaminska is a unique proposition. This is a book about universal values – love and friendship, but at the same time an excellent lesson in humanitarianism, communicated in a comprehensible language understood by children. This way of instilling in young people a respect for animals, our smaller brothers, is the best of all possible.This is a good start, so that later an adult has respect for his natural environment and Mother Earth. I would definitely recommend.

  3. Karina, dog lover

    A unique item created by the author in two languages. The book shows that love, happiness and good should be shared. I recommend the book – it is great reading for big and small.

  4. Monika, dog psychologist

    The story of Hector and his friends shows what is most important in life. What if you could see the world through the eyes of dogs and cats and find out what they need or want? And what if it turns out that the history of Hector shows that we are not so different from each other? The book breaks taboos in children’s literature on difficult topics such as loss, loneliness or illness, showing us that these are the natural elements that make up our lives, at the same time giving faith and showing how important hope, serenity, and seeing beauty and happiness is in difficult moments. This is not only the story of one dog, Hector, but also many other animals. Our imagination is aided by beautiful illustrations that were made with the utmost care. The author confronts us with strong emotions, while at the same time telling and showing how important it is to talk about emotions and feelings. And all this served in an interesting and exciting way.

  5. Asia, mum & dog lover

    Perfect gift for a child! A beautiful story that brings children a lot of joy, smiles and, above all, reflection. Reading together is also a great way to spend time with your family. A book in English / Polish can be used by a child to learn the language. The book is beautifully published, well written, with very nice illustrations. I recommend it with all my heart!

  6. Gosia, mum

    A beautiful, warm story that will delight not only children but also adults. It awakens children’s love for animals. It guarantees nice time while reading.

  7. Barbara, mother & dog lover

    This is a beautiful, educational story about a dog named Hector, whose history after the first chapter of the book shows that the dog world is not so different from ours. Twists and turns as the main character finally finds his safe haven, home and people who love him very much. The sentiment for me is the fact that as a child, I had a dog, Hector, with my brother, and reading this book to my eight-year-old daughter, I had a moment to remember him and even talk about him to my little listener. I hope that people after reading the book will look differently at a dog wandering in the street and treat them like a family member

  8. Greg & Paula, parents & dog owners

    A touching story of friendship, love and devotion. Every adult and child should read this book to realize that every animal needs our love. Thanks to this book, when I look at my dog I know that we will always love him and never leave him.

    I like the book very much, I like Hector and his adventures. He has gone through a lot but in the end he finds happiness and a real home. I wonder what’s going on at Hector’s now?

  11. Mother Eugenia & daughter Kristina, age 6

    I read the story together with my daughter. I expected a simple story about the animals and their life. But we were involved in a dramatic and touching flow of events. It was hard to stop reading, as the author gave the fantastic feeling of being a part of the main character’s life and emotions. We both really enjoyed the book and are waiting for continuation.

  13. Anna Samusionek, actress, mother & dog lover

    I regret my daughter is already too big to read her fairy tales, because I have no doubt that Hector’s story would be our favorite! The world seen through the eyes of a dog is simple, like the world seen through the eyes of a child, feelings and truth count. Many of us could learn love and devotion from our four-legged friends. I have already seen and read many stories about pooches, this one is special because it deals with difficult topics in an accessible and understandable way for a child. Hector’s story draws in, moves, entertains and teaches, stays forever in the hearts of small and large readers, giving hope that love always wins.
