The Lovereading4Kids comment

How a dog and a family get together is hilarious and heart-warming. Like any sensible stray, Sniff finds himself a new home when he picks up two children in the sandpit. From then on, dog and family have to learn to adjust to each other curious habits….

Sniff is the world’s funniest dog. He’s large and slobbery, adorable yet hopeless but every chaotic adventure he has looks as though it will end in disaster but somehow he saves the day. There are four titles in the series which the publisher has I’m pleased to say brought out in some stunning new editions for a new audience of 7-10 year olds.


Sniff by Ian Whybrow

Large, slobbery and lost, Sniff picks up Ben in the playground - and after that, there's never a dull moment for the Moore family. He's nuts. He's adorable. He's hopeless. Well, he might save the day - but only by accident.


I laughed out loud, not once, but lots of times ... A major talent has arrived. TES
