The Lovereading4Kids comment

The phrase ‘it’s a dog’s life’ takes on a whole new meaning in this quirky picture book. Raymond is an ordinary dog, who for a time leads an extraordinary life. Happy with his owners, and sharing most thing with them, Raymond wonders what it would be like to really be part of the family and starts walking on his hind legs. One thing leads to another, and before long Raymond has got himself a high powered job at Dogue magazine, then as a TV presenter. But it’s all work and no play, and soon Raymond is dreaming of his old life and that comfy spot on the floor by the sofa. The message won’t be lost on adult readers while children will delight in Raymond’s extraordinary adventures. ~ Andrea Reece

Synopsis

Raymond by Gwendal Le Bec, Yann Le Bec

What if dogs could walk and talk and go to work? Well, Raymond the dog has big ambitions beyond his ordinary, canine life in the big city. He wants to take himself for a walk and get his own dinner. And when he's done all that? Well, he wants a job, just like his owners. But when Raymond begins a high-flying journalism career at Dogue magazine, he soon realizes it's no walk in the park...

With a stylish limited palette and incredible visual humour, children and adults alike will fall in love with Raymond and his laugh-out-loud antics in this absurdly original - yet highly relatable - world.
