The Lovereading4Kids comment

Lovely bold illustrations capture Dog’s boundless and boastful enthusiasm. Dog loves his friends; he thinks they are brilliant but he also thinks that he is the best. How Dog’s friends show him how loveable he is, even if he is not the best, is warm hearted and touching.

Synopsis

I'm the Best by Lucy Cousins

Can Dog's friends teach him to be less of a show-off? Find out in this brilliantly original picture book from Lucy Cousins, creator of Maisy. Dog loves his friends. He thinks they're brilliant. But he also thinks that he's the best, and he just won't stop telling them! So what happens when his friends decide to teach him a lesson, by showing him all the things they are best at?

Reviews

Utterly wonderful... Anarchic, joyful, funny and colourful, I'm the Best is a perfect picture book * The Irish Times * The riot of colours and childlike paintings make the illustrations immediately engaging, drawing the young reader into the story. * The Scotsman *
