This is a story about a family trying to work out which puppy will be the right dog for them. It is an endearing and funny tale, written in rhyming verse with a huge variety of breeds to look at. Have fun thinking about the best breed of dog for your family as you look at all the beautiful watercolour pictures. Every dog has it's own personality! We have two dogs... I bet you can't guess which ones!
The family has a story of their own at the end, which adds a further dimension to this book, giving it a social context that gives positive reinforcement both to mixed race relationships and 'invisible' disabilities.
It is a larger size than my other children's books -'crown quarto', 246 x 189mm- so really great to share as a bedtime story, where everyone can see the pictures and verse easily.
(We have an English Bulldog and a pug!)
