This is a joyous fun-filled book which will appeal to children and dog-lovers everywhere. The rhyming text has pace and plenty of word play, whilst the exclamation marks and sometimes griant print really encourage expression and emphasis when read aloud. There are plenty of opportunities for reinforcing phonic work, finding new rhymes and making up adjectives like 'pondy' throughout KS1 but Y2 children might also be interseted in talking about how we learn our names and so gain a sense of self.
This is a poetic tale of a naughty puppy who is learning words but struggles to understand that 'Fred' is his name. Certain to have children in fits of giggles, but also a book with a heart of gold.
Simultaneously hilarious and touching
Charmingly drawn, sweetly written, and it leaves you feeling all warm inside. Puptastic!

A joyful romp of a story with plenty of humour... Charming illustrations complement the rhyming text to bring us a book that will be much-loved.
