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.

It’s so easy to find the right book for your child. Such an easy-to-use, yet in-depth website. 100% reliable.

Pippa, Jack, Liam & Matthew Wils

It gives me a chance to read types of books that I would not normally try, and it motivates me to read every night to finish it!

Alice Horncastle, age 14

You give me age appropriate ideas of books I can read and buy for the children and find out what other children their age think of them too.

Katie Lonsdale

It is THE website to use for narrowing down your search for any book. Definitely knocks the socks off any other book review website.
