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.

Reviews

Emma Dodd wields words as creatively as she does her paintbrush in I Don't Want a Posh Dog (Orchard, GBP10.99). 'I don't want a patterned dog. A jump-up-and-flatten dog/ I don't want a handbag dog. A tail-not-meant-to-wag dog.

-5. The Telegraph With bouncing text and illustrations that bound off the page, this should win every award going. The Sunday Telegraph Dogs of all kinds are on offer in the big, bold and expressive illustrationsin this hugely attractive picture book. The Guardian
