June 2012 Book of the Month. If you're looking for entertainment and a wildly funny adventure then any one of the Katie Davies stories is perfect. It's told from the perspective of 9 year old Anna, a young girl with a suspicious mind. The writing style is just as you'd imagine coming from a girl that age so young girls will love it. As Anna recounts her friend's exploits with the arrival of a new dog the reader will be drawn in to the exciting story. Great for reading aloud too as younger children not quite ready to read it alone will loved it.
The Great Dog Disaster by Katie Davies
Suzanne's Great-Great-Aunt Deidra has left her dog to Suzanne's Mum in her will. Suzanne is over-the-moon about having a dog again, after her old dog Barney was 'sent away to a farm' by her Dad. But when Beatrice the Newfoundland arrives, she is a BIG disappointment. She's smelly and old and miserable and doesn't like walks, or catching sticks, or any of the things that dogs are meant to like. So Anna and Suzanne devise a plan to turn Beatrice into a proper dog - but if they don't pull it off soon, Suzanne's Dad will send Beatrice away too...
