This is an absolute hoot of a book and I can’t wait to read it aloud (with Small in the house and Miss Mouse sleeping over, it will be a great opportunity this weekend)!
If you’ve ever owned a puppy you will be all too familiar with the peccadilloes of Dash as his young owner shows him off and enjoys her beautiful pet.
Dash is not a very good pupil at puppy school, is a bit slobbery and tends to make a mess (with help of course!) in the house but is very friendly and loves walkies time. When Dash goes missing everyone is out all night looking for him only to find that Dash has met another ‘dog’ up the road – PUPPIES!
Now if you want to know what makes this so different from other dog stories, I’m not going to tell you. Suffice to say that when you see it, you will understand the hilarity!
This is a prime example of illustrations adding far more meaning to the text.
Highly recommended for little humans in need of a few chuckles!
