I came across this one in the library and I was instantly interested. It sounded like a cute and fun book. Plus, hello, visiting Scotland (real or not) is a dream of mine, so I wanted to go along with this duo.

In this one we meet Haggis and Tank. Tank is a big Great Dane whereas Haggis is a dapper Scottie Dog. They are best of friends though we can clearly see that Haggis sometimes needs a time out from his very enthusiastic big friend. XD

Given the cover and the blurb I had expected these two to really go on an adventure. Really went to Scotland. But instead it is all imaginary. Something the blurb on my book didn’t mention. I was a tad disappointed, but then the adventure really started and I was fully into it. Didn’t mind it was all imaginary, in fact I was curious to see how far their adventure would go. What kind of things they would encounter and see. And they come across a big Scottish castle. With plenty of treats, great books, a bagpipe (as expected), but also a big werewolf. And he doesn’t seem too happy with our duo visiting his home.

I loved all the puns and other wordplay. There is Rrufff weather ahead, clouds/fog tastes like ice cream/when Haggis asks if Tank wants some sugar she replies:”Thanks! That’s sweet of you.”. And there is plenty more! It made me laugh and I had fun seeing what they would come up with next.

I also loved that this was a comic/graphic novel. And I absolutely enjoyed the style of the art. I need to check out what James Burks has done other than this series.

All in all, an imaginary fun story with two fantastic characters (Tank is my favourite) and a great adventure. Hopefully I can find the other books one day!

Star rating, 3.5 stars
