Max is growing up, he’s old enough to swap his toy dog Snuffly Poo for a real dog. Monty is friendly and boisterous, the perfect puppy, but looking after him isn’t easy, and getting him to settle down to sleep is very hard indeed … Children might just recognise some of their behaviour in Monty’s, they’ll certainly enjoy the last spread which shows Monty, Max and Snuffly Poo tucked up in Max’s dog basket. A lovely story about the trials and tribulations of owning a puppy – or of being the parent of a toddler! ~ Andrea Reece
