Synopsis

Is There a Dog in This Book? by Viviane Schwarz

In this third title in the extraordinarily inventive, brilliantly interactive Cats series from award-winning illustrator Viviane Schwarz - our three favourite picture book cats Tiny, Moonpie and Andre make a new furry friend...Something smells funny...what can it be? Wait, hang on a second, is it a DOG? Is there a dog in this book?! Oh no! Tiny, Moonpie and Andre are SCARED of dogs! Dogs are snappy and yappy, smelly and noisy and...they HATE cats. So, they all try and hide from him - behind the couch, under the piano, in the wardrobe - but when the little doggy finally finds them, well, they simply can't get enough of him! He is really very soft. And they want YOU to love him, too - go on, just give him a little cuddle.
