Sidney Delicious & his Andalucian adventures

About the author

Helen Stephenson studied in Bristol and London, and lived in Sudan and the Outer Hebrides before settling in rural Kent, but it was always her dream to live on a Mediterranean hillside.
Happily her dream came true when she and her husband bought a tumbledown farmhouse in Almeria.
That was when they met Sid …

Meet our hero, Sid, an independent, scruffy, country dog.

Sid craves adventure. Still just a puppy, he runs away to live in the hills but is soon lonely and hungry. By chance, he arrives at the perfect place. He loves his new family, his warm bed at night, and his dinner …

Sid can’t help following his nose and is always off exploring. He shares the sights, sounds and smells he encounters. Obsessed by food, he never misses an opportunity to help himself.

He tells of intense heat and snow, storm and flood. He meets wild boar and a poisonous toad. Despite having many narrow escapes, he relishes his freedom on the wild hillsides of his little corner of Andalucia.

His observations are honest and funny and he knows his own mind. Cats? Well, perhaps he should tell you how he feels about cats!

Join Sidney Delicious for a romp through the beautiful Spanish countryside as he celebrates his memories of a long, happy and eventful life.
