Monica Holloway’s Cowboy and Wills

Book cover

The publicist for the above book, Cowboy and Wills, written by Monica Holloway contacted me back in November last year and send me two copies of the books for reviewing. As I was quite occupied the past few months, I did not get the chance to go through the book till a few weeks ago.

In summary, the book is about an autistic boy (Wills)’s extraordinary relationship with his pet dog (Cowboy). The book is written by the boy’s mother and you can feel her love for her son, browsing through the pages as she document the bitter sweet experience of bringing up a special boy with special needs.

Getting a pet dog for Wills changed him for the better as Cowboy helped to overcome the boy’s fear of crowded places among others.

It’s the kind of motivational book that will inspire and cheer you up when you are going through a rough patch in life. Not exactly my favourite genre, but still accessible.

Since I have two copies of the book, I am running a small contest on this blog to give away a copy. If you are interested, email me your name, contact number and the answer to the question below to alvinologist@gmail.com before 25 Mar 2010:
