The Lovereading comment:
Playful, vibrant, highly entertaining and brilliantly innovative, this is an original debut picture book about a child's missing chihuahua. Clare's voice is contemporary, accessible and very funny and the words are written in dialogue with accessible yet entertaining language. The illustrations have been created using acrylic paint on canvas so there are wonderful textures throughout. This simple story is perfect for sharing aloud and reading again and again.
SynopsisHas Anyone Seen My Chihuahua? by Clare Wigfall
Oh, where has he gone? A little girl has lost her chihuahua! And he's her bestest best friend! He's soft, cuddly, bouncy and has the most ENORMOUS ears. But none of the animals she meets resemble her lost Chihuahua, Fernando. Each of them is too big, too small, too green or too feathery. Will she ever find him? This is a new author-illustrator pairing of two young and dynamic picture-book makers, who also happen to be life-long friends! Ollie's painterly art and striking colour palatte offer something unique for the picture-book market.
