The Lovereading4Kids comment

Dog lovers everywhere will enjoy the inventive display of different dogs that prove to be unsuitable before at last, an acceptable one is found. A patterned dog, a jump-up-and-flatten dog and a handbag dog are all captured in witty illustrations which match the catchy, rhyming text. And there’s real affection for the dog that is chosen when at last it is found. I don’t want a Cool Cat is out in hardcover to coincide.

And if you like Emma's books you can also read What Pet to Get and I Thought I saw a Dinosaur
