I Love My Puppy
By Giles Andreae
Illustrated by Emma Dodd
The cutest puppy ever arrives in a new family bringing fun, mischief and love in a new book in the award-winning I Love You series penned by the author of Giraffes Can't Dance.
From the team behind the ever popular I Love My Mummy and I Love My Daddy comes a book to delight anyone who either owns, or wants to own, a pet.
When a new puppy joins the family, this cute little bundle of joy brings both fun and new responsibilities! The excitement of this big event is explored with warmth and wit by Giles Andreae, the author of international bestseller Giraffes Can't Dance (from walks in the park, to chewed shoelaces!). Pitch-perfect rhyme and bold friendly art make this book great to share with even the youngest child.
