A Richard and Judy Children's Book Club selection 2011- Reading Together category

Most children love funny and exciting books about animals so it is wonderful to see the story of Jake, the unusual dog with a zest for live who likes to save the day, reappear into print. Only this time, he appears in colour for the first time with illustrations by the author’s husband Nick Butterworth, one of the UK’s biggest and best names in children’s book illustration. Jake in Action and Jake the Good Bad Dog are published simultaneously. In Jake the Good Dog, Bad Dog, Jake dreams of going to Crufts and just sometimes a dog’s dream can come true.

Synopsis

Jake The Good Bad Dog by Annette Butterworth

Jake loves to chase ducks in the park, can’t resist playing with dirty washing and no chocolate is safe when he’s around! He dreams of going to Crufts, but knows he’ll never get there. But Jake is a very special dog. He’s not just good at football, he’s the best friend you could ever have – and sometimes even a dog’s dream can come true!
