Julia Eccleshare's Pick of the Month August 2016 All fans of rhymes will love the witty and simple words in Oi Dog!. The rule says Dogs sit on Frogs but Frog is determined to challenge that. According to Frog, Dogs sit on Logs, Cats sit on Gnats, Mice sit on Ice, Bears sit on Stairs and Whales sit on Nails whether they like it or not! Jim Field’s illustrations chart the new seating arrangements brilliantly.~ Julia Eccleshare

Synopsis

Oi Dog! by Kes Gray, Claire Gray

The hilarious sequel to Oi, Frog!, selling over 140,000 copies, will have children rolling around with laughter. Frog is changing the rules...Dogs no longer sit on frogs. Phew! Dogs now sit on logs - and everyone else is going to have to sit somewhere different too. Will cats want to sit on gnats? Will spiders like sitting on gliders? Will whales be happy to sit on nails? And, most importantly, where is FROG going to sit?

Kes is one of the Independent's TOP TEN children's authors and winner of the Red House Children's Book Award. Jim's first picture book Cats Ahoy! won the Roald Dahl Funny Prize in 2011.

Reviews

It's not often I laugh out loud when reading picture books. This was one of those rare occasions...Great stuff -- Ann Giles Book Witch

A gem of a book which gets funnier and funnier as you read through the outrageous suggestions. Parents In Touch

I think perhaps the Gray/Field team have, between them, managed to out-dog Oi Frog with Oi Dog! It's absolutely un-missable Red Reading Hub

I simply implore you to buy it so you can enjoy it for yourself! I simply want to say that this was my most anticipated book of the year and it hasn't disappointed. It has exceeded all expectations...And I think it is my 'Book of the Year'! Book Bairn
