  • Where does Toby live?
  • What does the forest look like?
  • Why does Toby live at the foot of a tree?
  • Why do they live in a forest?
  • Who else lives there with him?
  • What do you think it’s like living in a forest?
  • What do these dogs get up to?
  • Where are their owners?



Write a story about Toby and the other dog. Perhaps they go on adventure and discover buried treasure.
