The Lovereading4Kids comment

Walker Books’ new Minibombo range already has a reputation for stylish, contemporary picture books: in the cleverly conceived The Dog Book readers are invited to look after their very own puppy. The more interaction readers have with him, the better, so you’re invited to name him, wake him up, give him a good scratch, train him to sit and throw him a ball for him. It’s lots of fun, and no wonder the puppy is ready for bed again after a busy day. Despite the simplicity of images and layout, this is a sophisticated little book that celebrates and subverts the nature of the picture book. ~ Andrea Reece

There's a companion title for cat lovers too!

Synopsis

The Dog Book by Lorenzo Clerici

I am a minibombo book: a little book buzzing with a big idea. If you have always wanted a pet, but your parents have never let you ...this is the book for you. Because, inside the pages of this book, your new dog awaits. Isn't he cute? Just look at him wag his tail! As a pet-owner, it's your job to wake him up (call out his name), rub his belly (with your finger) and clean him up when he gets muddy (your t-shirt makes a great towel!). It's hard work - phew! - but it's so much fun. From minibombo, the creators of The White Book and Black Cat, White Cat comes a playful picture book that cleverly encourages you to interact with the physicality of the page itself, and a book that will, with your imagination, bring a tail-wagging, ear-scratching dog to life. Woof!

I love Lovereading because I often never know what to read and this helps you find a good book. I have recommended this to many people.

I am so pleased to have signed my kids up as they are reading a much wider range of books and even choosing books out of their comfort zone.

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.
