Children’s books are quite entertaining in their own way as they transport the readers into a world of fantasy and make them feel relaxed.

He is even more surprised to learn that the dog has telepathic abilities and can read the thoughts of both other dogs and humans.

Since its birth, Andrew has been roaming the earth in search of others of its kind, although it is only after meeting Jimmy that Andrew begins to learn more about his elusive ancestry.

The site features a replica of Stonehenge in England and is shrouded in mystery that Jimmy and Andrew plan to uncover.
